This delicate fob chain has a small working clip at the top for attachment to a pocket. The actual fob chain is of very fine mesh with a buckle motif in the centre. There is a chain at the side for the watch and at the bottom is a pearlised barrel which includes a Stanhope or peep. When viewed, this is a ‘Souvenir of Niagara Falls’ with images. This style of chain fits with the correct concept of the fob chain – this term is often incorrectly used for earlier vest chains. The condition of this piece is very good for age and it would make a lovely addition to any collection of watch-related items. Maximum length including swivel approximately 4.75 ins (12cm). Weight 10 grams. This item appears in my book, “How the Watch was Worn, A Fashion for 500 Years” on page 182. Insured Air Mail Post with tracking to the USA would be $30.00 USD - with no tracking is cheaper. For shipping cost to other countries, please contact us.
