Here is the second gold filled woman’s muff or watch chain that I have come across in the past few months in a Maine estate. I feel quite lucky to have found such, and this one, a rose gold in color, is in excellent condition. The slides usually are 10K, but I have not tested it. The slide is etched with a floral design and slides easily on the long chain making for a lovely Victorian or Edwardian necklace. There are no black marks from wear to the chain, and it is in lovely condition. The dog head clasp is marked A S J Co which appears to be the mark of Attleboro Standard Jewelry Company. The company was founded in 1893 in Plainsville, Massachusetts but moved to Attleboro in 1900 specializing in the manufacture of gold filled jewelry. The chain double sided measures 24” in length (48”) in addition to the slide. It has been well cared for over the years so that the slide moves well. It makes a very pretty necklace evoking the Victorian/Edwardian eras when all middle class women had a gold filled watch and chain or a chain to attach to a muff in the winter season. Today they are worn as necklaces, and this one will make a nice addition to your antique jewelry collection.
