Georgian Rare Long Silver Chain with Acorn Clasp 60"
A wonderful and rare silver chain from the Georgian (ca1750) era! Most likely English in origin, this beautiful handmade chain is comprised of silver links that form an unusually long necklace. Each link has a very fine textured pattern on the outer surface that when examined closely has an intricate wirework design. The chain fastens together at a large acorn-shaped push clasp at the center. The acorn has a three-dimensional shape with a smooth face and etched cap. The inside of the links reveal a subtle gold wash, indicating that the piece was likely gilded at some point. When worn, the necklace can be easily doubled or tripled for a layered look, or simply worn long. A beautiful piece for any Georgian jewelry lover, it would make a special and versatile addition to any collection!
Measurements: The entire length of the chain measures approximately 60" long. The chain links measure approximately 1/4" wide and thick, and the acorn clasp is 1" long and 1/2" wide and thick.
Condition: The overall condition of the chain is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the silver links, and the acorn push clasp fastens securely and is in good working condition. There is a subtle gold wash inside the links that suggests that it may have been previously gilded.
