Thanks Joyce for the info. From research I've found this type of bead work watch chain was quintessentially a, circa 1830/40s, N. American fashion, featuried in numerous contemporary portraits. Presumably such bead work was a 'frivolous' pastime for wealthy leisured ladies, hence also all those intricate Regency purses etc. Jane Austen owned a beaded bracelet. Wonder about the looms !
