Art Deco Gold Plated Fancy Guard Chain c.1925

SKU: CH038

A beautiful French Art Deco fancy guard chain by Fix.

 

The chain has a wonderful small scrolled tonneau design linked with oval sections. 

 

It was made in France using the “Fix” process. This is rolled gold, in which 3 layers consisting of a plate of copper between two thin plates of gold is compressed between rollers to the required thickness and then stamped into the form of the jewellery.

The plate is in fabulous conditon - as is the the chain. It has a bolt ring allowing for a fob or charm to be suspended from the base if required.
