A scarce World War I era 60" patinated metal and amethyst cut glass watch or fan chain c1915. Unsigned but probably English, it was common for jewellery at this time to be blackened or patinated so as to avoid flashing and glinting, which could have been seen by the enemy fliers at night. This necklace has a large spring-ring catch and swivel, and the chain has oblong loops. This item is in excellent original condition with no chips, cracks, dents, bends, corrosion, losses, damage or repairs other than some minor abrasions to the edges of the glass stones. All items are thoroughly and conservatively graded and all condition issues are noted; all items are secondhand and may have slight signs of gentle use.
