The slide on this chain looks like a greenman face, the eyes are set with garnets and the mouth holds a pearl. The slide glides on the chain and stays where you put it. Slide chains were originally designed to hold a ladies watch and can still be used for this, but they are very versatile. This chain can be doubled for a shorter look, and you can hang pendants, fobs, lockets, or whatever strikes your fancy from the hook. The slide is 14k gold and the chain is heavy gold filled rope. Circa 1890.
Details.....The chain measures 48" Long, the slide measures .59" x .45". In excellent Vintage Condition, with a bit of wear to the back. You should always expect some wear on your vintage and antique jewels, we consider it part of their charm.
