This superb, French long guard chain and locket dates to the late Victorian period.

The chain measures 60” (154cms) long , excluding the dog nose clip, and is 3mms wide. The oval locket measures 1 and 1/8” (2 .7cms) by 7/8” (2.2cms). The chain and locket together weigh 37.2 grams.

The chain is a figaro style – trios of small round links joined by twisted oval links. The twisted links catch the light beautifully.
At the end of the chain is a dog nose clip which carries the boar’s head hallmark for 800-900 silver quality.

The gently rounded locket has a cross front and back. This is accented with beaded gilt lines, replicated around the edge. In each quartile there is fine engraving.

The locket opens via two notches at the side. The interior is lined with white, ribbed paper. The locket closes firmly with a click. On the top ring is another boar’s head hallmark.

This truly wonderful chain necklace is in excellent antique condition. It will arrive in a gift box.
