11" 14k & enamel mesh-style link Albert-style pocket watch chain with fancy t-bar and matching double locket fob, distinctive 14k yellow gold (tested) small round links have been connected together in a staggered pattern to create a pseudo-mesh design for the primary and fob-arm chain lengths, which together have been capped with a fancy chain final that is accented with black enamel geometric designs and finishes with a sturdy connector ring, each opposite end of the 2 chain lengths are then capped with smaller versions of the center final, primary chain length is finished with a screw-down 14k gold (marked & tested) swivel-like clasp, connector ring in the center attaches to a short length of 14k gold (tested) oval link chain that is finished with a fancy smooth polish 14k gold (hallmarked & tested) t-bar, fob-arm chain goes on to connect, via a 14k gold (tested) split ring connector, to the matching 14k gold (tested) double locket fob with floral and geometric black enamel accents.

Fancy-oval shaped 14k gold (tested) double locket has a scalloped edge design, one side has vermicelli engraving around a center flower design, which has then been accented with thin lines of black enamel to emphasize the flower and outer curl designs, reverse side has tight engine turning behind the elaborate, sightly raised smooth polish floral engraving along the outer edge and a center flower bouquet design, fob opens to reveal 3 sections (outer left, center, outer right), each able to support a small photo or keepsake, with smooth polish frames in each section, 2 of which still have the original glass inserts, currently in 1 section is a small lock of hair, when closed the sections are secured with a small engraved gold latch, upper connector loop has a tapered gold bail which would allow this locket fob to easily be worn as a pendant on a chain if desired.

Chain and fob are both showing normal even wear overall, however there are a few toolmarks of note on some links, small expert repairs on the mesh chain connector loops and the fob connector loop, the locket has one very small section of damaged enamel, and the catch on the locket fob looks to be an expert addition or replacement as it is slightly off-color. Chain measures approx. 285mm in length and weighs approx. 9.1dwt. Locket measures approx. 25mm wide x 30mm tall x 6mm thick and weighs approx. 4.3dwt. This is a very high quality vintage gold chain and fob set in excellent condition that is still eyecatching and attractive despite its age!

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.
