This quality Antique Victorian Albert Chain features a T-bar drop and double dog clip fastening, measuring 14" in length, modelled in Rolled Gold.

An albert chain is a decorative chain, originally used to attatch a pocket watch to the wearer's clothing. The chain was named after Prince Albert, who was said to have been fond of wearing watch chains. The Dog clip would have been used to attach the pocket watch too and the second clip would attach a fob or pendant. The T-Bar would go through the button hole of a waistcoat to secure in place.

Today these are often worn as necklaces and the clips can be used to hand a pendant from around the neck.

This is a quality example of a Albert chain which would make a great addition to any collection.

Frequently Asked Questions

Layaway Options?

We gladly accept layaway on all items in our shop.

All pieces may be reserved with a 20% non-refundable deposit. Regretfully I can only reserve items for 24 hours without the deposit.

After the deposit is made you then have 2-4 months to complete the outstanding balance at your own convenience without any pressure from me.

I usually ask items under £200 are paid within 2 months and any items over £200 are to be paid within 3-4 months. But this can be discussed to suit you.

If a layaway is cancelled the deposit amount is non-refundable. If a layaway item is returned you are only eligible for shop credit.
