265 Purple Paste Muff Chain

This is a metal and purple glass muff chain. It has long oval glass stones. Muff chains were used to suspend a muff so that the hands could be freely available when needed but kept warm in the muff at other times. Ribbons were also used on muffs but the metal and glass chains were so much prettier and could be used as a necklace at other times! These muff chains look great hanging long or wrapped around the neck a couple of times. If 2 or 3 are added together they do make a dramatic effect! c1900.
