RARE Edwardian Bone Egg Locket Charm

 

This little charm is a rare find!  Extremely hard to find from the late 1800's to early 1900's.  These little eggs originally where for charm bracelets and when opened revealed a tiny chick hiding inside.  Unfortunately, the little chick in this egg has since left the nest.  The outer paint is still very visible with some wear.  The charm still closes tightly with a little misalignment from use and age.  The bone in solid with no cracks or decay.  Design shows a brown rooster leading a little red chick into a arched opening tucked inside grass shoots.  The original brass ring still sits a top the egg and in good working order.  From the estate of a retired archaeologist, this little egg is now looking for a new home.
