VERY GOOD: This antique heavy Silver Albert chain is in great condition. The English Silver is solid and sturdy, with very little wear or thinning to the links. There is a Lion Passant stamp on every link which indicates that this chain is of fine craftsmanship. There is little signs of wear to the chain in total, in particular the two dog clips. One of the dog clips works perfectly, whilst the other dog clip does not completely sit flush when closed, so it will need to be shut manually. That being said, once the dog clip is closed it is secure. This does not detract from the chain's wearability, it just requires slightly more TLC and close attention than other necklaces.
