A Victorian to early Edwardian era chatelaine that includes a match vesta, pocket watch hook (watch not included), a vinaigrette or scent flask, a folding mustache comb in its sheath. Charming set, this! The match safe is engraved "1902" and bears the French boar's head hallmark, designating it as being in at least .800 silver content (80% pure so just under the .925 standard for "sterling" silver). The tiny silversmith mark is for Gaston Bardies, Paris circa 1897-1914. A fabulous set with ornate Louis XVI rococo styling, don't miss them!
Very good to excellent for age and type. If you're looking for a fabulous way to display your favorite pocket watch, this is sure to be it. I find no damage, and the silver is thick, beautiful. All measurements are noted on our photos.
Our photos are large and clear. We do expect our customers to review them all, evaluate the item based on both our description and our images. Thanks for all the compliments - we love what we do! Antiques & Uncommon Treasure - all the best, all the time!
