Details

This beautifully crafted antique Victorian Albert chain has been fashioned in Sterling Silver, gilded in 18ct Yellow Gold. A decorative T-bar separates the main chain from the drop, with the medallion hanging beneath. It is a beautiful example of Victorian craftsmanship.

Albert chains were used in the Victorian era to secure a pocket watch against accident or theft by attaching it via the T-bar to the buttonhole of a waistcoat. They were named after Prince Albert, who was Queen Victoria’s consort until his death in 1861.

The medallion is adorned with intricate engravings built around a central shield design. It is fully hallmarked, and dated 1897. The shield has been engraved at a later date with the inscription: ‘L.J. 1915’.

This is a solid, well made piece with a good weight which holds securely with the addition of a double trigger clasp.
