ID:	885669I found this photo pendant in a creek about 3 inches from the water line. A railroad bridge that has been there since before the civil war crosses the creek.

    I'm trying to find out how old it is. It looks like brass or copper.

    If Breezie checks in she will likely know, but I was wondering if those were intended to hold a pic of the deceased. A mourning broach.

    so it is a locket and not a pendant?

    was probably silver plated at one time.

    I found this photo pendant...
    Welcome fox,

    What are the dimensions of this piece? Does it open? Why do you use the word "photo"?

    Thanks for showing us.

    I'm assuming from what I can see from the 2nd pic there is a small space between the filigree and the flat surface of the pendant, which more than likely held a tintype photo. These were popular during the Victorian period and continued on to the 1920's or so. There is a slight possibility it could be a 'hair' pendant, but 99% of them were under glass or resin. Saving, displaying, wearing, etc. hair of a deceased family member was extremely popular during the Victorian times too.
    Neat find

    I forgot to mention: If the colors are correct in your photo, the red patina might suggest it was nickel plated.
