An ornate and intriguing sterling silver Victorian Albertina fob chain; great for use as intended and gorgeous as a unique bracelet as shown.
The ornate chain is an exquisite arrangement of double braided foxtail chains, ornate Etruscan revival silver beads and fob tassel. The braided chains are beautifully pliant and lovely to wear.
+ All the details:
Unmarked sterling silver. There are no silver stamps (not unusual for the era) - the chain has been tested for sterling and is guaranteed as such.
Length - 8 inches or 20.3cm from fastening ring including the large spring ring clasp, not including the fob tassel.
Width - the larger connector beads measure .35 inches or 9mm across, the double braided chains are 4mm wide.
Fob Tassel - 1.37inches or 35mm long, and 10mm wide at the cap.
Weight: 10.7 grams
Condition: Very good. No issues to report - all braided chains are strong and the spring ring clasp is working well. Nice natural patina throughout.
The ornate combination of chain and silver beads on this piece is wonderful - the Albertina tassel is the icing on the cake!
