Long Guard Chain Necklace 9k Gold Cased 143cm / 56.2" Antique Victorian c1860
Of a fantastic length, this is a great antique long guard chain necklace or muff chain in 9ct yellow gold case dating from the mid Victorian period. There is a dog clip clasp which is 9ct gold marked to the bale ring, but we believe the chain itself to be 9ct gold cased, this means solid real 9ct gold, not plate, over another metal in this case probably brass, there is some wear to the links, please see the pictures. The dog clip clasp is secure with a good spring.
