Intricate Victorian Hand & Slide Chain Necklace
During the Victorian era the fashion of ladies wearing long chains was ever popular. Often used to suspend a locket or watch, the typical chain had a decorative mechanism, the slide which could be moved up or down the length of the chain to effect multiple configurations and looks. The slide itself could have anywhere from one to three lengths of chain fed through its “teeth”.
Crafted of 14k rose gold, the continuous chain is made up of intricate pierced and folded shaped links akin to a foxtail pattern. Chased with an overall pattern, the ornate slide resembles a stylized and modified bow with vertical bands situated towards the ends.
Most importantly, the chain is detailed with that sought after hand motif. Beautifully modeled, the gloved hand grasps within its fingers a twisted loop attached to a dog clip (snap clasp). Please note the ruffled cuff originating from the bottom of the gloved hand. Highly polished, the rose gold links truly glint as they capture the light, both real and artificial.
Date: Circa 1880.
