'Albertina' Watch Chain in 14ct and 9ct Gold - Antique 1910

Description


This exceptional, fine and impressive antique watch chain has been crafted in 14ct yellow and rose gold, with a 9ct rose gold T-bar.


The multi-stranded 'Albertina*' is composed of three 14ct yellow gold chains.


The chain is fitted to one end with a 9ct gold swivel clasp, hallmarked '9C'.


The chain is fitted with a 9ct rose gold T-bar, hallmarked with the 9ct gold fineness mark (9.375), the Birmingham assay office hallmark (anchor) and the maker's mark 'WHWLD'.


The five links from which the T-bar suspends are each struck with the 9ct gold fineness mark (9.375), and one of the links the Birmingham assay office hallmark (anchor) and the date letter for 1910 'l'.


The chains are ornamented with an ornate floriated 14ct yellow and rose gold bead, which may move freely along the length of chains.


A second floriated bead ornaments one end of the chain, from which a chain and ten-tailed tassel articulates.


The multi-stranded chain has been independently tested using state of the art technology (Niton XL2 Analyzer) and verified as 14ct gold.


*NOTE: An Albertina chain is the name given to a watch chain worn by women. The chains were generally finer than the Albert chains, and often were multi-stranded.
