Edwardian Silver & Niello Guard Chain

308 Admirers

A lovely silver and silver gilt long chain. It has been decorated in the niello style that was popular in the early 1900s in Germany. Niello is a black mixture of copper, silver, and lead sulphides, used as an inlay on engraved or etched metal. It can be used for filling in designs cut from metal. It was a difficult technique to execute, so chains such as this one are always sought after.The detail is very fine and looks smart. It can be worn single, doubled or trebled up.
