Antique Victorian Sterling Silver Watch Chain Necklace with Two Tone Fob and T Bar

Seen in London, 1900, hanging from the vest of a Duke as he dashes across Shaftsbury Avenue. Spotted in New York City, 1925, as a bracelet on a flapper with mulberry lips. Seen in Paris, 1975, used by an artist as a muse. Now, on your neck, as you stroll through the farmer's market picking out crisp apples and stealing glances from strangers. 

This long Albert silver chain dons an Edwardian medal watch fob, both made in Victorian England. The chain was handcrafted around 1898 and the fob was made in Birmingham in 1905. The silver chain contains long and short links patterned between each other that hold the fob, a sturdy shield of silver and gold surrounded by ornate and regal designs. Alberts, or watch chains, were named after Prince Albert, the husband of Queen Victoria. 

Each long link is 35.7 mm long, drop length is 10.5 cm including the pendant. The chain is hallmarked on the links, t-bar and clasp, with a lion passant, an anchor, the letter 'p' and a maker's mark that reads 'HB&S.' The pendant measures 46 x 31.4 x 6 mm. The pendant is hallmarked with a lion passant, an anchor, and the letter 'f,' as well as a registration mark of ‘RB304734’. This necklace weighs in at a hefty 102 grams and is 19 inches in length.
