This is a gilt metal complete fob chain of metal mesh with an applied heart. This is a genuine fob chain – this term is often incorrectly applied to other styles of vest chain. There is a safety clip to secure the fob chain to the vest or buttonhole at the top and a short chain with swivel to attach a watch which would be held in a vest pocket. The condition is very good for age. This piece would make a lovely addition to a collection of watch chains, or would add extra style to an outfit. Length of actual fob 4.5 ins (11.4cm). Weight 20 grams. This item appears in my book, “How the Watch was Worn, A Fashion for 500 Years” on page 177.
