Unmarked tested as 18ct chain, 15ct gold slide and clasp. A Victorian long chain and slide in very good condition.
A gorgeous and substantial chain. This intricate and long chain is an excellent example of mid-Victorian sensibility. This chain includes charming slide decorated with a seed pearl buckle. The chain culminates in a swivel clasp, which would have most likely held a fob watch in the Victorian era but now makes an excellent clip from which to hang a lovely gold charm or two.
