This beautiful antique Silver Albert chain is in great condition for its age! Hallmarked for the year 1904, it's amazing to think what it's seen in its lifetime! There are no damaged or warped links, and you can tell it's a quality piece as every single link has been individually hallmarked for Sterling Silver. They do have a little light wear but no dents or dings, and the Silver has a beautiful subtle patina.
The links have taken on a more rounded and softened edge than they would have had when it was first made over a century ago, but if anything, we think this only adds to it's beautiful, tactile quality. We believe the T-bar and dog-clip are original to the piece and the dog-clips work well.
