SOLD Art Deco Sterling Silver Albert Chain Necklace
A lovely quality albert chain from the Art Deco period, dated Chester 1926. The chain is made from sterling silver and is marked on every link with a lion passant, the mark denoting the fineness of the silver. One link on the chain has a full date hallmark on it. The chain has slightly graduated links, growing wider towards the centre of each side of the chain. It also has extra links attached near the T-bar that would allow the chain to be made longer if required. It has two dog clips, meaning that it could also be split to make two matching bracelets if preferred. One of the dog clips could have been added later or has replaced an original as it has a different hallmark to the rest of the piece. A lovely example of this popular style and in excellent condition.
