An incredible antique sterling silver chatelaine.

A truly beautiful piece, designed to be worn clipped to a belt or sash, the clip on this chatelaine is designed with an openwork scrolling design, typical of the Art Nouveau era, it has an interesting mask design which appears to be green man, pan or nature related.

There are three masks the largest to the top each surrounded by scrolling foliate.

The chatelaine has five separate chains suspended each with a dog clip fastener and of slightly varying lengths for securing your favourite accompaniments, the links are beautiful fancy link panels with scrolling edges and a star detail, interconnected with silver O rings.

Traditionally used to hold useful tools, usually for sewing, these can be adorned with any number of antique pieces such as stamp cases, vestas or vinaigrettes, scissors to fob watches the possibilities are endless!

This is a fine and rare piece, fully hallmarked for sterling silver and with each link stamped with the lion passant for sterling silver.

Hallmarks for Chester Assay office, 1900.

Good used condition overall with some signs of use and wear commensurate with age, overall dark patina to the silver, can shine up nicely if desired, clip with a slight bend at the back.
