This is a very large and glamourous chatelaine pin. The identical two pins have beautiful round multifaceted green crystal cabochons which are dog tooth prong set inside brass rims. These green crystal cabochons are attached to eye shaped exquisitely detailed brass plates. Each brass eye shaped plate is as exquisitely carved on the back as it is on the front. Each brass plate has four beautifully detailed swag chains which connect to the other brass plate. What you see is this amazing effect of a gorgeous waterfall necklace in between the exquisite brass and glass eye shaped pin. The chains are exquisitely carved on both side. Now across the front of the chains hang three brass tassels with strips of plainer chain extending from each. The center tassel has a small green crystal at the top of the ornate chain cover.
The patina is very dark and I suspect that this chatelaine pin dates back to the Victorian era. Some like a darkened patina; others do not. I have not attempted to restore the color of the brass. I will leave that decision to the new owner.
