18th Century Dutch silver knitting needle guards
A wonderful pair of Dutch silver late 18th century knitting needle guards.
These are on their original chain with a further chain and fastening having been added at a later date, but could be removed.
The fastening does have a silver mark.
Both guards are marked, but one is rubbed and the other one appears to be a makers mark.
Lovely colour and condition.
length of guard 4.5 cm
original chain length 25 cm additional chain length 12 cm
