Originally designed to keep one's timepiece close to his or her chest, watch chains are once again becoming a must-have for every jewelry box!
This timeless piece is crafted in fine rolled gold plated metal and features a double strand rope chain with a buttonhole toggle, an Albert clasp for your watch and a bolt ring for a fob. However, the real star is the beautiful, intricately engraved slide with its inky black enamel.
This watch chain was designed by Lincoln Bacon and Company from Plainville, MA, a short-lived jewelry manufacturer who fell into financial ruin after just 13 years in business. The company was active between 1883 and 1896.
Whether you wear this stunning chain on your vest or re-imagine it as a slinky bracelet, this gorgeous piece is perfect for showcasing you favorite charms, talismans or fobs.
Materials: Rolled gold plated metal (probably brass) and enamel
Measurements: 8 1/2"

Condition: Very Good - Metal has light surface scratches consistent with age and wear. The slide has a few tiny dents and an abrasion on the side. With heavy magnification you can see that some of the plating is beginning to wear in a few spots. However, this is not visible to the naked eye.
Cleaning and Care
