I offer this wonderful Continental silver chain just having returned from a European buying trip. It is French, circa 1900, with unusually fine silver work. The silver is 800, which is Continental. The links are finely finished and the silver smooth as would be expected of French jewelry. It bears a French guarantee stamp for silver on the spring ring. This oval link motif is similar to another I had sold last year, but in this example the oval has additional twisted interior wire ornamentation and the connecting links are also finely detailed. These are increasingly difficult to find and this is only one of two chains that I was able to purchase
The chain measures a long 54 inches X 1/4 inches and weights 53 grams.
It is in excellent, original condition and has a spring ring that could be used for a locket or fob of choice. Superb, French, circa 1900.
