Hung from the one end is an enamel pendant fob, Stepney & District Football League which is inscribed to the rear 1924-25.
The links of the chain are marked with the silver lion, however many of these marks are rubbed, there is no dating hallmark to the chain. To the one end is a dog clip clasp as well as a T bar pendant, neither of which are marked & due to the slight colour difference may be nickle silver & are being sold as such. The dog clip is secure with a good spring but is misshapen please see the pictures.
