Treasure Chest Thursday: Grandma's Locket

This United States Navy locket belonged to my grandmother, Ethel Ranney Tapley.  It was obviously a gift from her husband, my grandfather, Charles Morgan Tapley as he served in the Navy twice.  That is Grandma's picture next to the locket.  I like to think the locket was a comfort to her during the months he was away while serving in World War II.

  1. Very cool locket! I came upon it while researching one I am selling. Looks like someone fashioned the word Mother out of sterling silver in script, then hung a small mother of pearl ring, then hung a locket very similar to this one underneath. Thanks for posting this!
