Antique Aesthetic Movement Silver Plated Collar Book Chain Locket Chain circa 1870
A most attractive aesthetic movement circa 1870 locket or book chain collar made of silver plated metal.
This lovely chain has large links with an inverted fan shape and little decorative lugs on either side. There is embossed decoration with dots and darts detail. There are also little decorative balls on the side facing inwards.
The 22 fan shapes are approximately 3/4 inch long and the chain fastens with a large free-swivelling bolt ring which has a diameter of 5/8 inch. The design is very typical of the aesthetic movement era and would team beautifully with an aesthetic movement locket or pendant. Looks equally good worn on its own or layered up with other chains and necklaces.
The collar is in very good antique condition with just minor wear to the plated finish, mostly to the back. A lovely item to add to any collection.
