Name Lockets – The True Demonstration of Affection
Posted by Namefully Yours on March 01, 2012 |
Lockets, pendants that open and contain pictures or other memorable treasures, have been around for a very long time. Lockets were big in the Victorian Age of Britain and made a major comeback during World War I, when lovers and daughters wore lockets with their soldier’s picture attached to the inside and a name or initials inscribed on the outside. We’ve all seen or read A Little Princess and we’ve all cried our eyes out when she finally sees her dispatched father, whose picture she’s been wearing around her neck (okay, maybe just me). Regardless, we all do know, either from the book, or just from basic knowledge how important name lockets were in the 1910s.
