A heavy sterling silver Double Albert watch fob chain from the early 1900s with incredibly beautiful graduated links. The chain has two fob clips and T Bar, plus a lovely cutwork sterling silver shield medal.
Perfect used as originally intended or a fabulous necklace as shown.
+ All the details
Every link on the curb chain is clearly stamped with the English Lion Passant mark for Sterling Silver. The fob clips and T-Bar and are all stamped for silver Birmingham, England and the year for 1912 - I believe these to be the original fittings.
The medal is also hallmarked for Birmingham but a little earlier with the year 1906.
The main chain is 17.32 inches or 44cm long from end of fob clip to end of fob clip and the largest graduated links are 8mm wide.
The chain pendant drop is 1.55 inches or just under 40mm long
The medal measures 1.18 x 1.57 inches or 30 x 40mm in size.
Chain and fob medal are seen in image #1 on a life size torso.
Weight: 63.4 grams.
Age: 1912 (chain and fittings) 1906 (medal)
Condition: Excellent. No issues to report at all. Lovely natural patina throughout and all fittings are in beautiful order.
Graduated chains are fascinating, beautiful to see and hold, testimony to the expertise of the Edwardian Silversmiths.
