VICTORIAN ladies and chatelaine their purses.  View

  VICTORIAN lady wearing a chatelaine chain.

  LADY wearing gold earrings and a fancy watch and chain.  

 
For years, ladies wore necessary and useful implements clasped to the waist of their dresses because clothing was not made with pockets for carrying such items. They were usually worn suspended from a clip or large brooch with chains and hooks to hold the various implements, although later chatelaines could be worn on a finger ring. Fashioned of both precious and non-precious metals, they could be extremely simple or ornamented with embossed work, pierced work and gem stones. They were fashioned in a wide variety of materials: gold, sterling, gold wash, cut steel and enameled and jeweled.

Chatelaines might be comprised of items all used for one task...sewing, for instance... or combined with various items that suited the wearer. Some were matching sets like the cut steel chatelaines and others were compiled over time by the owner, especially the sterling chatelaines. Belt chatelaines or waist hooks were also used to hold a purse, as seen in the vintage photograph above. Most fashionable from about 1870 to World War I, they remain popular with collectors today.

VICTORIAN cut steel sewing chatelaine with 7 implements, 16-1/2" total length. The implements include a key, scissors with case, tiny corkscrew, aide memoire, sewing awl and round pin holder. This is in as nearly perfect condition as I have ever seen for it's kind and age, early Victorian circa 1850.
 For years, ladies wore necessary and useful implements clasped to the waist of their dresses because clothing was not made with pockets for carrying such items. They were usually worn suspended from a clip or large brooch with chains and hooks to hold the various implements, although later chatelaines could be worn on a finger ring. Fashioned of both precious and non-precious metals, they could be extremely simple or ornamented with embossed work, pierced work and gem stones. They were fashioned in a wide variety of materials: gold, sterling, gold wash, cut steel and enameled and jeweled.
