These pieces were designed to replicate the earlier Georgian watch chains, where the watch sat in the pocket of the trousers and a gold strap would hang from it. This gilt metal chain follows the same idea but has a patent clasp to attach it to a belt loop. The strap also has a length of chain and dog clip and will attach to a pocket watch. The mesh strap has a faux buckle and hanging from this is an oval gold plated fob set with a green hard stone engraved with an intaglio. The strap measures 110mm x 38mm and is in 90% mint condition – tarnish on the buckle.
