A Victorian RGP or rolled rose gold plate watchchain with a swivel and t-bar circa 1900. This twist style 12" long open link antique watch chain is 1/4" wide and it has a loop drop from the t-bar (which kept the chain in place by being anchored through the vest buttonhole) for suspension of another decorative accessory, either a gentleman's pocket watch or fob or watch key. It would also make an interesting bracelet or necklace.
There is a loop marked rolled gold with the maker's mark for Kollmar and Jourdan , a Pforzheim Germany manufacturer founded in 1885.
