EXCELLENT-VERY GOOD: This 18" antique Silver Albert chain is in superb condition throughout.  Both the Silver dog clips are in fine working order, with all of the links securely connected to the next. What is wonderful about heavy Albert chains is that you can be promised many more years of wear, as they lend themselves to both durability and strength. There is only some minor surface wear as well as some light Patina that is to be expected from an authentic Victorian chain. Nevertheless, this necklace can be enjoyed for a century more!
