Victorian hair work WATCH CHAIN with TOOTHPICK



Now fully operational from the beautiful Pacific North West, we encourage all to keep a close eye as we unpack posted offerings and continue what will be an ongoing effort of unpacking the collection while taking stock with an eye toward thinning out our accumulation of treasures. After years of seeking out and acquiring all manner of quality antique Americana from simple but seldom surviving items of special interest to historically important treasures, Janet and I look forward to offering the fruits of our years of seeking out such to new and appreciative homes.

A beautiful hair work watch chain done in a distinctive pattern, this unusually fine example of the popular sentimental craft of the 1850’s and 1860’s measures 16 inches in total length and offers the unusual feature of carrying a toothpick in it's button bar (see illustration). The hair work chain is an impressive 7/16 of an inch in diameter (We have provided a photo with a US quarter for size comparison.) and remains in extra fine condition , is supple and without frays or imperfections so as to be as nice as when made. A really nice piece for the mourning or Victorian jewelry, watch or even dental collector, this example will make a fine accessory to lay in with any Civil War grouping. (see THE ART OF HAIR WORK by Mark Campbell; re-print edited by Jules & Kaethe Kiiot). We are pleased to offer a no questions asked three day inspection with return as purchased on direct sales!
