Item Description:

Vintage Marathon locket is ahead of its time in a large size, octagonally shaped, tricolor face that will be in perfect scale with today's fashions.  This is a striking design with an engine turned tricolor face that has two large picture frames within that are each stamped, "Marathon".  The Marathon Company, of Attleboro Massachusetts was founded in 1907 as the Attleboro Chain Company and was incorporated in 1922 under its present name.  We think the locket dates Ca. 1930.  The locket bears the initials "MLS" and opens like a purse with a clasp at the top for easy opening that closes with a smart click.  Although there is some evidence of age on the back, the locket's plating is completely and beautifully intact, so we are calling the condition Very Good/Excellent.  This would look great with a longer gold tone or tricolor chain or worn shorter with a black cord or ribbon.  We love the stylish look of this vintage locket and think you will be thrilled to give it another incarnation that has heirloom potential for yet another generation as well.  (#41460-LocketMarathonTricolorVintage)
