Item description:

See scan - perfect condition. THIS IS THE SCARCEST POCKET WATCH FOB CHAIN / CHAINLET WE'VE EVER SEEN. This is a true 14 karat solid gold total filigree hand jewel master work of a probably great Imperial Russian craftsman. The fob chain weighs a total of about 90 grams of solid gold and also has niello and blue enamel ornaments at case part. There are also 7 big very nice and clear diamonds on top. The largest one is about 0.7 karats and the other 6 pieces are about 0.15 karat each. The case part is in the form of a Royal crown and has the typical for the Russian masters ornate filigree decorations. I very much can say this resembles the work of the famous Russian / Swedish jewel master Eric Kollin, who was one of the best FABERGE masters, but since this was most likely a personal order there are no hallmarks. The chain itself is 600mm long when double folded and 1200mm if unfolded. SCARCE ANTIQUE JEWELRY / JEWELLERY PIECE. This has been a true Imperial Russian piece, probably manufactured and crafted for someone very high class person and most likely member of the Russian Royal Family. The piece originates from Bulgaria and it was most likely presented by some of the Royalty people that arrived to Bulgaria after the Russian victory over Ottoman Turkey at that time and giving freedom to Bulgaria. At that time Emperor Alexander II arrived with his staff and visited several Bulgarian towns. I am sure this was a special present to a very high class Bulgarian official. The chain itself is scarcely made out of special filigree gold threads. There are also floral like motifs made out of dark blue niello at back. In my opinion this is one of the greatest Imperial Russian gold watch masterpieces I've seen. Amazing... ITEM WILL BE SHIPPED BY SPECIAL COURIER SERVICE!!!
