A very fine example of a Victorian gold filled bookchain necklace.
The bookchain style has a yellow gold filled two sided design that is the same on both sides, the chain is very flexible and lies beautifully around the neck.
The sardonyx cameo pendant has the profile of a young lady, the hard stone cameo is very well carved with great attention to detail. It is set with multi claw prongs.
The necklace clasps in the front, the cameo pendant has a hidden clasp on the side that is secure and allows the chain to have a continuous line around the neck.
The pendant has classic Victorian style- the shield shape has an engraved rose gold top, the serrated ends of the chain are also rose gold.
Excellent antique condition, no damage and minimal wear commensurate with its age.
The chain measures 20" long by .25" wide, the pendant adds another 1&3/8" to the length. The pendant measures 5/8" by .5" not including the tassels, the tassels hang .75", the cameo alone is 12mm by 8mm.
Total weight is 21.5 grams.
