A splendid 9ct rose gold antique early 20th century Albert chain with alternating trombone and round uniform links with a T-bar. Every link is stamped ‘9' '375'  the two swivel clips and t-bar are also marked. The t-bar is affixed to a large jump ring which gives it the ability to freely slide along the chain - a nice added feature. The Albert chain can be dated to Birmingham, 1918 with the date letter 't' to one the large jump ring (see image). 


Weighing in at a pleasing 40.3g and measuring 16.5” or 420mm long the chain is a rare example with many similar chains having been scrapped for the gold. Traditionally worn as a watch chain suspending a pocket watch, Albert chains can also be worn as necklaces and used to suspend charms and pendants. This piece also acts a great investment piece which can also be worn!
