Antique 9ct Rose Gold Fancy Belcher Link Long guard Necklace.
A wonderful example of an antique long guard necklace with its original dog clip clasp.
The length allowed for a pocket watch to be attached and then tucked into a waistband . Sometimes referred to as a muff chain as they were also designed to be long enough to thread through a muff or a woollen hand warmer.
The fancy belcher links make this a robust chain to hang a substantial locket or pendant from.
The necklace is also a classic, stand-alone accessory that can be doubled. The condition is excellent commensurate with age.
