I inherited a 1′ round locket that opens with a mirror on the top inside and a bowel in the back inside (looks like something could be added, it seems like it would be more than a picture with the mirror?). It says German silver, the top has tooled like round design.
Any idea where to look for more info would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you.
