This is a chunky, heavy Victorian sterling silver hallmarked albert chain, complemented with an antique vesta case.
The chain (each link) is hallmarked but the hallmarks are extremely worn due to age.
The vesta case is hallmarked makers Hilliard & Thomason, Birmingham 1899. It is in very good condition, a very small dink in the curve, that can be felt but not really seen.
Chain measures 18". Vesta case measures 45mm x 45mm. Opens and shuts securely.
There are some light surface scratches and a patina, to be expected on antique silver items which have been carefully used and well cared for. The necklace is not made from brand new pieces of silver, any scratches and signs of wear add to it's character.
Supplied in a pretty fabric drawstring bag. Will be posted signed for delivery.
