Comment(s).

¹. During the 1830s and 1840s a particular type of clasp for long chains appeared – small gloved hands made of gold, finely chased and sometimes set with precious stones such as diamonds, pearls, turquoises and others. Its mysterious symbolism, typical of reticent Georgian society, was given a fresh clarification in the Victorian era, when in the 1880s the motif was revisited for use in small gold and silver brooches as a love token; representative of the romantic age.

². When Birmingham manufactures found their local assay office overloaded with consignments, they would resort to the next closest, Chester, in order to have their goods hallmarked.
