This antique 800 silver French long chain was recently purchased in Paris. It has a chic , tailored design with rectangular etched, detailed rectangular plaques separated by equal lengths of chain. The plaques have an "x" design very popular during the early 1900's in French jewelry. I have seen it on lockets, but rarely on a chain.
It is smoothly finished and in excellent condition. It has a lovely, original patina and retains French guarantee stamps on the end ring.
It measures 60 inches long X 1/8 inches across the plaque.
This design is so elegant and it is equally lovely worn doubled, tripled, with or without a pendant.
France, circa 1900.
