    This beautiful Jugendstil long guard or muff chain is made of silver and has 6 gold caged malachite beads. The chain links have a paperclip shape and the malachites have a very good size, of about one centimeter. It has a maker's mark for Gustav Hauber, whose workshop was based in Schwäbisch Gmünd, which together with Pforzheim was an important jewellery manufacturing centre in Germany at the turn of the century. The chain also has an Austrian import mark. It dates back to around 1900. By the way, The Hauber jewellery company still exists today.

      Did these work like the thing children use for their mittens these days? Looks quite long.

      katherinescollections, yes indeed that's how these chanis worked. Muffs were a must-have accessory for 1900s ladies, so the chains had to be chic!! Thank you, and also Agram & Fluffy for the comments, and all the others for their loves.
