Hello CW friends! I wonder if there is a name for this type of chain?
In the first photo I show a closeup of one of the links in the chain. The one to the left is from my necklace, while the one to the right is from a photo of a german earring from 1936.
They are not exaktly the same but quite similar.
My necklace is 41 cm long and consists of a number om links with small pearls. I think the metall is brass that might be goldwashed or what you call it but I am not sure that is the case. I am not an expert on pearls but I don't think they are natural or anything special.
But the necklace is quite nice and "lacelike".
So I would be most grateful for information and or ideas about the name of the chain with this type of link. Are they still made today?
I can't make up my mind if I think this is fairly new or if it has some age. What do you think?
After having tryed nomerous variations on line I searched "antique french link filigree chains". I then see chains that looks more like mine but nicer. I think mine is quite vintage revival or new imitating the antique ones. Still don't know the name of the chain type.
