A beautiful muff chain from the Art Nouveau (ca1900) era! This wonderful piece is crafted in rose and yellow gold-fill to form a fabulous two-tone necklace! Sections of rose gold square link chain alternate with ellipse-shaped links, each of which holds a yellow gold twisted wire adornment in the center. Fine milgrained work decorates the border of the twisted wire, adding a wonderful textured element to the design. The necklace fastens at a spring clasp attached to a watch swivel clasp, perfect for hanging a favorite locket or pendant, and thanks to the generous length of the chain, it can be worn long or doubled up for a fabulous layered look. A beautifully made piece, it is versatile enough to wear everyday and would make a perfect addition to any collection!
Measurements: The entire length of the chain measures 45.5" long. The ellipse shaped links measure approximately 3/4" long and are 1/8" wide.
Condition: The overall condition of the chain is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the gold-filled setting. The spring ring clasp and watch swivel clasp are secure and in good working condition.
