Albertina Watch Chain Sewing & Tassel Charms Sterling Silver Antique Victorian c1860.
Fantastic example of an antique albertina watch chain containing a tassel charm to the end & 3 sewing related charms to the centre dating from the Victorian period.
The sterling silver has been tested as there are no silver marks. All the silver balls are present to the end of the tassel. The swing charms are a pair of closed scissors, thimble & button hook. All the detailing to the parts is present. Some of the links of the chain are missing the end balls, I count 7 missing, please see the pictures, all the links are good & secure however & this is just a detail. Good spring to the dog clip clasp.
