c1880 Victorian 9 Carat Gold Long Muff Chain 46g


A beautiful, fine quality and substantial, late Victorian, 9 carat yellow gold intricate twist link muff chain that is very long.

The chain is hallmarked 9 C on the circular clasp. The chain is designed to slip through a ladies’ muff, which is a tube made of animal fur, in which she keeps her hands warm. The necklace chain allows the muff to hang from the neck at the height of the abdomen. These chains, given their length, are popular as necklaces, folded several times over. This is one of the heaviest examples we’ve had.
