12.5" yellow gold filled (YGF) double strand curb link Albert-style pocket watch chain with slide, swivel t-bar finding, and a YGF keg fob, two strands of light weight YGF curb style links with a flat profile and beveled details comprise the primary length of the chain and are finished on each end with small rectangular YGF finals with floral engraving, sliding along the length of the chain is a YGF square slide engraved with geometric and floral engravings on one side and a fancy snowflake on the reverse, medium-sized center connector ring, short segments of YGF oval links create the fob drop and finding arms of the chain, primary chain is finished with a large YGF classic swivel clasp, finding arm is finished with a large smooth polish YGF t-bar with a raised center cuff detail with a swivel center.
Finding drop arm is finished with a heavy YGF fob in the shape of a keg with recessed banding, a sturdy top connector loop and one side of the keg with a recessed line that allows you to unscrew that side of the fob to reveal a small area that can hold a tiny keepsake but was likely used for snuff or another dried material as we do not believe this is watertight; chain findings, links and fob are showing normal even wear overall with a number of spots of brass starting to show on the findings, slide, finals and fob along with a few small spots of discoloration on some chain links, likely from an improperly applied gold test, chain measures approx. 315mm in length, chain links measure approx. 2.5x3mm, fob measures approx. 14mm wide x 18mm tall x 13mm thick. A very attractive, high quality chain and fob set, still looking great despite the signs of wear, in very good condition overall!

"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".
this pocket watch chain and fob combination is a matched set
