Salute!


Artist Statement: I love this nifty little locket!

This great black and white image was taken in October, 1942 and portrays a US Navy gal from the WAVES division (Women Accepted for Volunteer Emergency Service). She's got that sparkle in her eyes and is ready to serve!

This picture is part of the George Eastman House collection (Kodak) which gives us a glimpse into the historical images of that special era and it's simply stunning in it's petite brass frame. The World War II nostalgic image is mounted on an antique oxidized brass locket pendant which hangs on a brass rolo chain. It's sealed with a glass-like coating for protection and shine and the chain is finished with a lobster clasp. Length-16 inches but can be lengthened to 18 per your request!

Inside the locket, there are 2 empty recessed areas for you to mount your favorite pictures of your own choosing. These openings measure 3/4 of an inch around. The outside diameter of the locket measures 27mm (just over 1 inch).

This would make a fabulous gift for that special someone!

Enjoy!
