Edwardian Yellow Gold Filled Mesh, Seed Pearl & Black Intaglio Roman Soldier Fob Watch Chain #c981
This beautiful gold-filled piece would have been used by a gentleman to hold a pocket watch at the turn of the 20th century. It features an ornate gold toggle top for attaching the chain to a vest or belt. The center portion of the chain is a wide mesh band that is decorated at the top and bottom with a lovely open, looped design. The bottom of the chain holds a wonderful black glass intaglio fob of a Roman soldier in a very ornate, scrolled setting with three white seed pearl accents. A separate cable chain with a dog clip is attached to the top of the piece and would have held the pocket watch. It's a superb piece!

The chain including the top piece and the fob measures about 5 inches long and 18mm wide. The other chain and clip are approximately 5 inches long. The total weight of the piece is 15.4 grams. It is signed"D.B & Co." on the clip. I was unable to identify the maker's mark. It is also marked "Pat Apld For" on the back of the top toggle piece.

This is such a lovely chain! It's a great piece for the pocket watch enthusiast or vintage watch collector. It could be used in myriad ways and its gorgeous intaglio fob is so elegant it could be repurposed as a necklace pendant. The piece is in very good vintage condition with some slight finish wear in spots. It's ready to wear or to gift out of the box!
