Vintage Sterling Silver Fob-Chain Necklace with T-bar
 
The vintage fob-chain necklace has a main section which is made up of curb-style chain, and has a dog-clip and ring which act as a closure. A T-bar is suspended from a ring at the centre of the necklace. Like most fob-chain necklaces, the necklace is made up of components by different makers each made in Birmingham over a period around 1940.  The dog clip is marked “S.S”, and is probably made by Samuel Smith and Son. The ring at the centre of the necklace (supporting the T-bar) has the Birmingham hallmark and the date letter for 1938. The T-bar has the maker’s mark “HB&S” for Herbert Bushell and Son; the lion passant sterling silver mark and the date letter for 1941.
