SOLD Late Victorian 9ct Gold Horse Bit Chain Necklace
A spectacular chain from the turn of the last Century, c1900. The chain is made from solid 9ct gold and has horse bit links all the along the length. It is in beautiful condition and the gold has a lovely rosy tint as you would expect from antique 9ct gold. The chain is marked 9ct with a tab on the back of one 'bit' and also on the original sprung bolt clasp.
The Victorians loved to exhibit their passion for sports in their jewellery and this is one of the nicest specimens of this genre that I have seen. A real rarity.
