Antique English Victorian long necklace with a watch clip in 9 karat gold. Late 19th century. The clip was used to hold items such as lorgnettes and watches, or to thread through a muff so it could be worn around the neck, falling at or below the waist.
Marked A.C.C. 9CT on the clasp and also marked 9CT on a cartouche at the top of the chain. The hinge of the clasp is brass, shown on both sides in photos. The
rest of the clasp and chain is 9 karat gold. There may be an 18 karat wash over the 9 karat gold, which was fairly common in the 19th century. The chain is 53
inches long. It weighs 13 grams. Excellent condition. Display form is life size. Photos enlarged to show detail.
