Very nice 9ct yellow gold antique PW albert chain. It doesn't have the usual 375 link stamps nor does it have an assay house. It does, however, have the maker initials L&S, which is the maker Levi & Salaman. L&S first registered in 1888 and continued until 1917, the business was then sold to the Barker Brothers in 1921. The T bar, links and dog clip are all stamped with the exact same 9c stamp, which suggest that this chain is all original (no parts added to or taken away) except for the fob. The maker initials are on the dog clip. Maker initials often change font over time, and based on the font, this was chain was made between 1911 and 1917.

The fob is stamped Birmingham 9 .375 with a date stamp of 1917. Although the fob carries a different makers mark, the time period is correct for the chain and makes a complimentary addition to the overall look.

The overall condition is very good for an century old chain. All the 9c stamps are legible (a loupe is needed to see the T bar stamp) with an average amount of rubbing and wear to the stamps.

The main chain with dog clip is 12 inches long, and the fob with chain tail is 3 1/2 inches long. Total weight is 39.5 grams.
