  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.

GEORGIAN  large aide memoire in 
	mother-of-pearl with wonderfully carved pink shell roses and abalone leaves 
	along with beautifully etched flowers, leaves and scrolls in the 
	mother-of-pearl, includes it's pencil, 3-3/4 by 2-1/2. 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.   
	 A similar cut steel chatelaine can be seen in Jewels  Jewelry by 
	Clare Phillips on page 65and in Chatelaine by Cummins  Taunton, page 
	198-9. VICTORIAN Dieppe pocket book 
		with delicately carved flower bouquet on the front, probably early 1800's French, 4 by 2-5/8.

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.
 
A similar cut steel chatelaine can be seen in "Jewels & Jewelry" by Clare Phillips on page 65and in "Chatelaine" by Cummins & Taunton, page 198-9.   View   View   View   View   #V36345
