Albert Watch Chain in Hair & Gilt - Victorian/Edwardian

Not unique, but certainly rare, is this 18" city gent's waistcoat attachment. Unusually, for such an unsentimental age (either side of 1900) some men had watch chains made from their wives' tresses - sometimes posthumous This one has the usual bar for popping through a waistcoat button-hole. A propelling pencil replaces a fob. The only thing missing is a pocket watch - but the attaching clip is there! Condition excellent. Worldwide insured air shipping included in list price. Nothing else to pay.
