Impressive 11.5" 14k multi-strand Albert-style chain with unusual pencil holder t-bar and bloodstone stamp fob, 7 strands of 14k fancy link chains with star engravings and raised details make up the primary length of the ribbon and are finished on both ends with a heavy slender smooth polish bar, top of the primary chain length has a heavy deeply engraved bar design connecting to a large ring, 2 strands of fancy round link chain connect from the ring to another loop which in turn supports a 14k marked spring ring and a matching length of chain making up the fob-drop arm of the chain.

Acting as an oversized t-bar is a distinctive 14k fully engraved pencil holder set on the end with a light yellow citrine base and a raised band along the length that slides to extend the pencil holder, from the bottom length of the chain is a smooth polish filigree design connecting to the matching fancy round link chain length that connects to the marked 14k heavy swivel, connected to the fob-arm is a heavy 22k (tested) stamp-style fob with an unusual infinity design top on the round deep green and red bloodstone base with a smooth polish cap and a fancy 'A' initial.

Chain links overall are showing normal even wear however there are a few expert repairs on the multi-strand section where they meet the lower finishing bar and also on the fob-arm near the fob, swivel is showing light wear, t-bar is showing a few shallow dents but otherwise in excellent condition and measures approx. 32mm in length x 5mm in diameter at the base, fob is in excellent condition and measures approx. 22mm tall x 12mm in diameter, weighs approx. 29.9dwt. A very impressive and high grade chain and fob set to pair with your fancy heirloom watch in excellent condition!

For historical information, photo examples, and suggested wearing styles for our pocket watch chains, please visit our "How To Wear" Guide.
Our example photos show our items against a backdrop created from a men's medium-sized vest. Depending on the style you are looking to create with your chain, we offer that for someone with a slender build or short to average height, you can expect the shown item to hang off your person similar to the photo. If you have a larger build or are taller than average, please note the chain will hang differently off your person than shown.

As a rule of thumb, on an average-build male, we suggest straight or Albert style chains 10" or shorter for heights under 5'8", 10" to 14" for heights 5'8" to 6'2" and 14" or longer for heights over 6'2". For Double Albert chain styles, we suggest 20" or shorter for heights under 5'8", 18" to 30" for heights 5'8" to 6'2" and 24" or longer for heights over 6'2".
Please note: this pocket watch chain and fob combination is a matched set; however, we may offer the option of purchasing the chain or fob separately; if so, the drop-down menu above gives individual prices and allows you to select your desired choice or combination.
