Circa 1870 this beautiful and versatile antique black Vauxhall glass (known as French jet in France) long guard chain necklace is a full five feet long would have been worn as mourning jewelry during Victorian times.

This is a fairly heavy necklace composed of faceted 7mm glass beads that are hand knotted on cord and it terminates in a black enamelled dog clip at one end and a jump ring at the other. Total length of the necklace end to end is 60 inches (153cm) and it weighs 72 grams.

In Victorian times these versatile guard chain necklaces were either worn as a single strand around the neck and tucked under the belt with handy accessories attached or doubled/tripled for wear as short multi strand necklaces, often with lockets or pendants attached. They are just as versatile today, a timeless classic. Please note the cross is not included.

The necklace is very good antique condition with expected signs of age and wear but nothing detrimental. Irregularities and occasional slight chipping to some of the beads as you would expect to see with handmade antique glass but no shattering. There are a couple of older repairs to the cording and the enamel is worn on the clip. Please refer to photos. Heavy and good quality the necklace drapes well with no kinking, it has withstood the test of time for 150 years and is destined to last many more moons to come!
