Silver Watch Chains

I stock small selection of chains for sale on the internet which are in addition to those held at the antiques centre.

For advice on selecting a suitable chain please see my blog post here.

Some chains have a "tail" to attach a fob medal, if not used the tail can be tucked out of the way when worn or it can be detached, please specify when ordering if you want me to do that for you, the spare links will be taken off and sent with the chain

Most of these chains are hallmarked Silver (Birmingham unless otherwise stated) but there will also be a few base and “White Metal” chains. Silver chain links are only marked with a lion so can only be dated from the bar which will probably be original and sometime from the clips which may well have been replaced at some time. A small number of fob medals are available on the next page and if ordered together with a suitable chain I will attach the fob before dispatch. Most Fob medals will be hallmarked Silver, frequently with enamel finish or rolled gold embellishment.

All shown here are stock items, those at the antique centres not being shown. All clips work and are secure unless otherwise stated, the length quoted excludes the clips etc. I am limited to the number of pictures I can have on the web site but click on picture and you may find another.
