This is a beautiful antique Victorian solid silver albertina watch chain. This unique vintage find measures approx. 35.5cm long and 1cm wide from the tip of the bulldog clip fastening to the edge of the tassel at the other end. Please note due to its age there are no hallmarks but it has been stamped with the lions passant on the hoop by the t-bar and it tests as silver. It features a smooth bulldog clip fastening at one end and two tassels are the other.
One tassel has six herringbone strands and the other has five strands and both have an ornate engraved cone shaped top. The smooth t-bar just above the tassels measures 3.5cm wide and there is a smooth ball at either end of the t-bar.The watch chain is made up of two ridged belcher chains that are held together by the bulldog clip at one end and the hoop at the other. There are also two ornate engraved panels that hold the chain that are beautifully engraved with a leaf scroll pattern. Please note in the centre of the chain one of the round ridged links is damaged and needs some tlc, please see last pic. Otherwise this piece is in lovely condition and is a rare vintage find.
