An intriguing Albert chain featuring an feather arrow flight as a fob ornament. The tip of the flight is set with an azure blue foil glass 'crystal'.
The Victorian era chain is great worn as originally intended but at just under 14 inches long, this is long enough to be worn as a unique bracelet and doubled over, it wraps a 6 inch wrist beautifully.
+ All the detail
The chain is rolled gold and the fob clip is stamped 'NCRCO' made by the National Cash Register Company. The rolo link chain is smooth, nicely weighted and wonderful to handle.
Note: The arrow flight is very interesting... the 'wings' are strongly testing as gold over sterling silver but the central spine is sticking to a magnet. As found, but I suspect this was once the head of a pocket watch key.
Length - 13.77 inches or 350mm from clip end to ring end (not including the arrow flight ornament) the chain will nicely wrap a 6 inch wrist twice.
Width - 4 mm
Swivel T Bar - 32mm long
The Fob ornament: 17mm wide x 24mm long.
Weight: 15.1 grams
Condition: very good. Clip and swivel T-Bar are working well, all parts are secure. There is a small section of wear through the gold on one side of the flight, showing the silver beneath (can be seen in the enlarged first image).
A fascinating Victorian chain with a nice sense of history about it, well made and lovely to handle.
