This is a lovely sewing chatelaine. It is in very nice, gentle used condition, made of a brass like metal with aged patina. I have not polished this item, but I would imagine it could be made brighter. I prefer to leave my items as is, but the new owner can make that decision.
The ornate medallion is the best part of this item. It is just gorgeous. Please enlarge for the details of the foliage, flowers, cherubs and partial nude lady. This section is approximately 3 inches wide by three inches long. At the longest point, this chatelaine is 11 1/2 inches long.
As for condition, some of the red velvet inserts have wear to the nap. Also, the pincushion is pushed in on one side. I have tried to show this is the photo, but it is difficult to capture. Please look the photos over well for condition. There are no scissors with this chatelaine.
Please email with any questions you nay have. Thank you.
