Name/Title

Locket, [Clara Quilter]

About this object

Locket; this locket belonged to Clara Catherine Quilter and is engraved C.Q. Clara eloped and married Thomas Quilter in January 1940 just before he left to serve in World War Two. We think Thomas gave it to Clara as a wedding gift. It is special because Thomas died during the war and Clara kept the locket for the rest of her life.
