Victorian 10kt Gold Chain Necklace with Slide
A wonderful gold slide necklace from the Victorian (ca1880) era! Crafted in 10kt yellow gold, this lovely curb link chain is extra long and features a carved slide found in the center. The slide has a unique scalloped shape and both sides have lightly engraved details. At one end of the chain is a watch swivel clasp, which hangs below a hand-shaped surmount. The 3-dimensional hand forms a fist, grasping the handle at the top of the clasp. The watch swivel opens easily, making it possible to hang a complimentary pendant at the middle if desired and the slide moves easily, adjusting the placement on the chain. The 10kt gold chain has been recently plated to give it a more brilliant finish. A versatile Victorian piece, it would make a wonderful everyday addition to any collection!
Measurements: The chain measures approximately 56" long in total, with the hand charm and watch swivel clasp hang 1 1/2" long in the center. The slide measures approximately 5/8" long and 1/2" wide.
Condition: The overall condition of the piece is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no serious damage to the gold chain or watch swivel clasp, which is in good working condition. The slide is intact and moves easily.
