A fine and alluring Victorian sterling silver fob chain tassel with an Etruscan Revival silver cap suspended from a length of original fob chain.
The tassel of six foxtail chain braids is silky and pliable to the touch and each is capped with a ball of sterling silver.
+ All the details
There are no stamps at all (not unusual for the era) all parts of the tassel and cable drop chain have been carefully touchstone tested and are guaranteed as sterling silver.
Sizes: overall length (neck chain to tassel ends) is 3 inches or 70mm. The widest part of the tassel cap measures 11mm or .43 inches across.
The Chain: Presented on a new sterling silver rolo or belcher chain, 50cm or slightly under 20 inches long. The tassel and chain are shown on a life size torso in photograph 2.
Weight: 4.7 gms (without the chain)
Tassel age: c.1880
Tassel condition: Very good. There is wear to the curF31b chain, though still strong. No fraying to the 7 foxtail chains, all silver caps are in place. Gorgeous patina to the silver throughout.
I am always fascinated by the remarkable workmanship of these beautiful silky Victorian tassels. This rescued piece makes a unique and lovely pendant.
