Albert Chain - Circa 1900. A watch or fob chain named in memory of Prince Albert, consort to Queen Victorian. The Prince wore such chains as an accessory with his morning attire. Crafted of 9k rose gold, ornate extended pierced bars accented with a saw tooth pattern alternate open work oval links. At one end is a dog clip or snap gate claps, a typical closure of the period. A T-bar fitting, similar in configuration to the extended links, is suspended at the other end.
"Hyde Park Pet-Cemetery". Just out from Lancaster Gate tube station and inside High Park is this hidden example of eccentricity. It is not opened to the public but you can take a peek through the railing. With over 300 little graves complete with miniature grave stones this is the final resting place for some of societies upper class dogs. Burials took place in the Victorian period and the cemetery was closed in 1915.
