S.B. Champlin Company
1872 - 1934
The men's watch chain or "Vest Chain" is typically much scarcer than the pocket watch itself. This is because by 1915, the watch was retired to storage and the chain “discarded”, thrown away, or women converted them to bracelets. This fine men’s vest chain presented was produced by the Champlin Co. in 1896, inventoried, and was never sold to the trade or Jeweler for sale. It is therefore, in pristine, new but old stock condition! Can’t get any rarer or desirable!
A sharply angled, almost-triangular-plan 5-story brick industrial building, this was constructed by the S.B. Champlin Company (established 1872) to house its manufacturing of gold rings and gold-filled chains as well as provide rental space for other jewelry manufacturers, an own-and-rent practice then common in the jewelry industry and characteristic of neighboring contemporary buildings in the Jewelry District. The building was so successful that it was enlarged to the south in 1901; only a faintly visible seam marks the union of the two sections. In 1978, the building was converted to condominium use, the first of its type in the area, and retains mixed residential and commercial use.
Four (5) styles imaged; you pick the one you want.
Vintage STERLING SILVER VEST CHAIN with T-BAR NOS Never used complete with a T-Bar and original Sterling Silver I.D. Tag. The swivel is also marked: "Sterling". This is an offering of a single silver vest chain from approx. 1890. Never used or placed on a pocket watch bow. Extremely rare! Just removed from my personal collection after 45 years. Just view the images carefully, select one of the link styles and that will be the one we will ship. Imaged is an example of four (4) styles. THIS IS A FINE COLLECTIBLE. DON'T INVEST IN THE STOCK MARKET or BONDS BUY HARD ASSETS SOMETHING PROVEN IN TIME.
OTHER NICE FEATURES: Free U.S. Shipping. $58 Fedex overseas.
