A long and lovely Victorian gold-filled cable chain with a gem-set slide and a handy watch hook. The disc-shaped slide is set with a tiny opal and four wee pearls. Incised detail accents the gems. A slide chain is a long, thin chain with a slide and a watch hook; the slide glides on the chain and stays where you put it, and the hook holds charms and pendants and/or functions as a clasp. Slide chains were originally intended to hold a ladies' watch, but you can display whatever piques your imagination from the hook. So versatile, this chain can be doubled for a shorter look or arranged as a swag. Circa 1880.
Details.....The chain is 48" long, the slide measures 9.4mm in diameter, and the hook is 0.75" long. In Very Good Antique Condition. You should always expect some wear on vintage and antique jewels; we consider it part of their charm.
