This beautiful, French, antique long guard chain is hallmarked for 800-900 quality silver. I am dating this piece to circa 1890 - 1900.

In Victorian and Edwardian times a guard chain was used to carry a muff, lorgnette or watch. Today it makes a fabulous double necklace to which you could add an antique locket or pendant if desired.

It measures 56” (142cms) long. The chain is 4mms wide across the oval shaped motifs. It weighs a substantial 31.3 grams.

This stunning guard chain has pretty, oval links , pierced and corded In the centre They are joined by trios of small links.

At one end is a ring clasp which could be used to secure the chain as a double necklace of opera length. The attaching link carries a boar’s head , French hallmark for 800-900 silver quality.

This very decorative chain ,of good weight, is in fine antique condition with an attractive patina of age. It will arrive in a gift box.
