Description
Antique Gentleman's original iron German long pocket watch chain/Albert with well made original dog clip and chunky T bar. C~ dated 1916 (WW1). Similar to the pocket watch chain I supplied for 'Peaky Blinders'. Measures; 43cm / 16 3/4" total length and weighs a highly respectable 21.7 grams. Elongated black iron links (stamped to the end link with a makers mark which sadly I am unable to decipher) with roller links in between which are interspersed with two oblong shaped plaque links (each measures 2.6cm length x 1cm width). One of these links depicts the Prussian Coat Of Arms with left facing eagle (same to both sides) and is clearly dated to centre; 1916, around this is written in slightly raised script; GOLD ZUR WEHR EISEN ZUR EHR (gold for weapons, iron for gold). The other plaque link is clearly stamped (in slightly raised script) to centre with the date; 1916 and again is stamped around this; GOLD ZUR WEHR EISEN ZUR EHR. During the first World War German occupants where strongly encouraged to give up their gold jewellery to aid the war effort and were given in exchange an object made from iron - I would suspect due to the long length of this chain the original owner gave a fair amount of gold and by proudly wearing it displayed he was patriot to his Country. Original well made secure dog clip to one end (operates correctly and note the attractive engine turned collar) and chunky swivel T bar (measures 3.5cm length) to the other end. Excellent bright, clean condition with no damage or wear and just a tiny bit of extremely light overall patina (showing under eyeglass) commensurate with age. Will arrive in a new presentation/display box and be very securely and safely packed. *** WILL SHIP WORLDWIDE *** UK - FREE! ROYAL MAIL 1ST CLASS SIGNED FOR DELIVERY
