Vintage Indonesian Silver Mesh Chain Necklace, 7mm, High Grade Silver, 66 Grams, (2.325oz.) 49.5cm (19 1/2″)
This is a vintage, dating from early to mid 20th century, genuine, solid, high grade silver, mesh knitted wire flexible chain necklace, from Indonesia. This is the older type of handmade chain, not the newer machine made chains that are readily available these days. Through wear over the years it has become smooth and supple.
The making of the chain has been beautifully executed. The sterling silver end caps have a strong 'S' clasp for closing. The clasp has been marked with 925 - sterling. The necklace is quite heavy in the hand at 66 grams (2.325 oz.) and measuring 49.5 cm (19 1/2").
There is natural tarnishing between the links from age. I have cleaned this chain because of dirt residue from wear over time. I do not normally clean my items - but I thought that this would be best.
