Silver Albert chain 1897 Birmingham

SOLD - to a gentleman!

This is a lovely single silver watch chain complete with T-bar and spring clip. The chain is of graduating curb link construction. This chain has each link stamped with the passant lion, has been much loved as many of the hallmarks on the chain are partially rubbed. The T-bar carries the maker's mark for E Whitehouse & Son of Birmingham along with the Sterling mark and date mark for 1897. The clip has a hallmark that is partially rubbed but is consistent with the makers mark on the T-bar. This item is a lovely example of a completely original silver watch chain that is now over 120 years old.
