This quality Antique Albert Chain is modelled throughout in solid 9ct Gold featuring a dog clip and bolt ring fastening, along with a T-bar drop.

The chain is fully hallmarked on every link, dated to Birmingham 1898.

An albert chain is a decorative chain, originally used to attach 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 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 hang a pendant from around the neck.

This is a rare and quality find which would make a superb investment for the future.
