An albert chain is a decorative chain, originally used to attach a pocket watch to the wearer's clothing. The chain was named after Prince Albert, who was said to have been fond of wearing watch chains. The Dog clip would have been used to attach the pocket watch too and the second ring would attach a fob or pendant. The T-Bar would go through the button hole of a waistcoat to secure in place. Today these are often worn as necklaces and the clips can be used to hang a pendant from around the neck. This is a quality example of an Albert chain which would make a great addition to any collection.
