Antique Victorian silver book chain necklace. It has a design called stars and cannons on the top and side of the double belcher link chain.
The third silver ball to the right of the bolt ring has come unsoldered and the link has split, but is secure as is. With the exception of this, the chain is in excellent condition, with just a few minor dents. The stars and balls are all present, and in excellent condition. No hallmarks, but tests as silver.
Originally these necklaces were worn with a locket or pendant attached to the bolt clasp. You can add your own, or wear as is.
Length 42cm, the width of the chain is 4mm and the stars and balls are width 9mm. Weight 21.8grams. Circa 1880s.
The workmanship of this Victorian vintage necklace is of very high quality. This is a fabulous antique silver necklace.
