STUNNING ANTIQUE SILVER ALBERTINA. Stunning antique solid silver albertina watch chain. Lovely & very ornate example of a Victorian albertina. Often referred to as’sunday best watch chains’ this type of chain first appeared in the 1890′s & where worn mostly by ladies as an alternative to a guard chain to wear a fob watch. This example is in beautiful condition, with 5 graduated chains joined to a beautifully engraved central panel leading to side section hung with an ornate silver tassel. The engraving on the central panel is very fine & crisp also with engraving to the edge. One ball on the tassel may be a replacement as is slightly larger than the rest. No markings that I can find so has been acid tested for silver. Could be worn as a bracelet or added too to wear as necklace. Or just to have as an excellent example. Length from tassel end to swivel 28cm. Size of central piece 4.8cm x 1.5cm. Track Page Views With. Auctiva’s FREE Counter.
