This sterling silver book chain bracelet is a handsome example of Victorian fashion. The book chain's links are exquisitely engraved with delicate flourishes. The bracelet closes securely with an integrated slide clasp. Gorgeous, this bracelet is beautifully constructed with a generous weight and a supple feel. Circa 1870.
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 bracelet is 8.5" long and 0.8" wide. In Excellent Antique Condition. In vintage and antique pieces small imperfections are to be expected and considered part of their charm.
