Era: Antique over 100 yrs old
Antique Victorian silver book chain collar necklace, featuring beautiful detailed silver work to the links on the front and reverse. There are no hallmarks, but this lovely necklace tests as silver. Each link is soldered to one side. Length 41.5cm / 16.34 inches, and the maximum width of the chain is 1.2cm / .47 inch. Weight is 30.3 grams. There is some wear, as to be expected.
Originally these necklaces were worn with a locket or pendant attached to the bolt clasp. We have found this large and unusual silver tone pendant, featuring a lovely intricate piece of crochet work. It is not an exact match with the necklace, but blends well. Or perhaps you would like to add your own locket or pendant. This pendant is later than the necklace, probably mid 20th century. Measuring 4.9cm / 1.93 inches by 3.8cm / 1.49 inches. The pendant has some dents to the rim, and scratches to the reverse.
The workmanship of the Victorian necklace is of very high quality. This is a fabulous antique silver book chain necklace and vintage pendant.
