This is a pleasing vest chain of gilt metal for a gentleman. At each end are decorative attachments with some fine chasing detail – one holds a T-bar and the other a swivel. Closer to the T-bar there is an attached working bolt ring which currently holds a seal which is of a more yellow gold colour and has a blank seal face. This could be easily rearranged. The overall condition for this piece is very good for age and it would be very useful to wear with your favourite pocket watch or to attach a late 19th century watch with other appendages. Maximum length 13.25 ins (33.6cm). Weight 42 grams. This item appears in my book, “How the Watch was Worn, A Fashion for 500 Years” on page 173. Insured Air Mail Post with tracking to the USA would be $28.00 USD - with no tracking is cheaper. For shipping cost to other countries, please contact us.
