I might be seeing things, but is the girl in the locket wearing her hair down? If so, she will be quite young, so not one of your married ladies, and I agree that she looks around 15.

Have we any idea of the age of the locket itself?

Good idea. Knowing a bit more about the locket and itís previous owners might help work out who the girl is.

As the photo in the locket has obviously been cut from a larger photo it could be that it originally contained a different portrait. I donít suppose there is an earlier portrait underneath the girls photo?

Is the locket made from jet? It is very lovely.

I think jet would have a higher polish. May be bog oak, which was duller?

Some nice pieces on that website josey.  ;)

Through a bit of googling, I found some jet pieces which look quite dull.

Doesn't help but I wonder if it could be her father with his arm round her.

I agree. Difficult to say if she is sitting or standing but I would say sitting. If she is standing then there is a large height difference.
