This unusual watch chain has the most beautiful and ornate chain. It has tiny bars individually soldered onto to round links, and every other bar has a slight etched pattern on it. The overall effect is very pleasing. The ends ar 14k gold ( acid tested ) and the chain itself is 10k for extra durability. The watch chain is 13 1/2 inches, not including the snake hook which is 1 1/4 inches. The total weight is 52.9 grams. In good condition with normal signs of wear for a piece of this vintage. C. 1880 and American in origin.
