Traditionally found attached to the end of a gentleman's watch chain, but today used to secure a necklace or bracelet, this is a fantastic antique 9ct yellow gold dog clip clasp dating from the late Victorian period. The gold has been tested as there are no gold marks, but there is a makers mark which reads 'D&C.' Good spring to open & secure the clasp, there is a tiny gap when closed, please see the pictures.
