Like men who had the Albert chain to attach their pocket watch to, the ladies had these to wear with their pocket watches with the pocket watch at one end and attached to an outfit at the other, however today these are more commonly worn as a bracelet where they look so elegant sitting beautifully on the wrist. This one was made in sterling silver during the Victorian era and dates from the 1890's and has the most beautiful fancy balls and lozenge sections that will be admired from near or far and then with the gorgeous tassel at one end with its original foxtail links, all of these features give this bracelet such a wonderful feminine look to it. Measuring 24cm from end to end, when worn as a bracelet around the wrist, the swivel can attach to the bolt ring, and this distance measures 20cm allowing it to drape elegantly over the wrist. This is a very beautiful way to take a traditional antique piece from over 100 years ago and make it just as wearable today. Stock# ES8634 Circa: 1890 $Sold.
Here is a very lovely sterling silver antique Albertina that dates from the Victorian period of the 1890's and looks as beautiful today as it does when it was made over a century ago. Originally the Albertina was designed to connect a ladies fob watch at one end and secured through a lapel via the tee bar at the other end, they are now often worn as a bracelet or attached to a chain or a second albertina to make such a unique necklace. Also known as a Leontine, from end to end it measures 28cm and from the swivel to the link to make into a bracelet, it measures 20cm. It also has three chains that all move independent of themselves and has such an attractive style to them. Fitted with a gorgeous tee bar made in a twist design, it also has its original fox tail link tassel which adds so much charm and character to an already very beautiful piece. No matter how this is to be worn, this antique albertina is just so attractive and will continue to be so versatile. Stock# ES7406 Circa: 1890 $Sold
