Antique Victorian guard chain beaded necklace with dog clip. Both beautiful and practical, this chain necklace is perfect for attaching your favorite pendant or charm, layering or alone.
Four pairs of elongated, satin glass beads are symmetrically placed among the small round ones. The long beads are ribbed through the middle and the small beads have a raised middle, seen through a loupe. These lovely details give the beads subtle texture.
At the bottom is a gold filled, 3/4" dog clip, unmarked but tested. I had this necklace professionally restrung and knotted with silk thread years ago; it lies flat, no pulling, very secure. The condition is very good with no missing beads, chips, or other issues.
It measures 50" including the dog clip and can be doubled, as in the neck display photo.
