Dotty Gold Filled Book Chain and Locket

Gem Set Love

This gold filled Victorian book chain is delightful, and a complimentary locket hangs from the bolt ring clasp. Each oval link is decorated with four dots. The chunky round locket is embellished with a circle of dots surrounding a flower. The locket is in very good condition, the original glass and frame are intact. The decorative bolt ring allows the locket to be easily swapped out for any other pendant, locket or fob you like. Circa 1880. 

The term "book chain" comes from the folded flat links' resemblance to the cover of a book. It is also said these flat chains were often used to mark a place in a book. 

Details..... The chain is 16" long and 11.2mm wide. The pendant measures 1.02" across. In Very Good antique condition. In vintage and antique pieces small imperfections are to be expected and considered part of their charm.
