Size: Chain measures 17.5 inches. Locket measures 3cm. Weight: Total - 11.3g (chain approx 5.5g).


Frederick and Lucy Cazalet were the descendants of the Hopper family who founded the Shipock Ironworks in Moscow and the Muir / Mirrielees families that created the great department store in their name. Both the Hopper family and the Muir / Mirrielees were of Scottish origin and were prominent families in Russian business circles.

Frederick Cazalet (1871-1945) married Lucy Hopper (1870-1956) in the Anglican Church in Moscow in 1901. Both were born in Moscow. Lucy was an authority on Russian pewter and porcelain.

Fredrick and Lucy Cazalet managed the great Muir and Mirrielees department store in Moscow until they fled the Russian Revolution in 1917. The department store was nationalised after the Revolution and became TsUM.


This piece has been specifically selected by us, for you. We choose vintage and antique items which we think are beautiful, elegant and classic at a range of price points between £30 and £3,000.

Generally, this means we only ever have one of each piece. We don’t select pieces which are “mass market” but rather items which are more individual. This means that once an item has been purchased, it really has gone.

Each piece comes in an attractive jewellery presentation box.
