An amazing piece of craftsmanship, this Victorian Chatelaine belt is made of cast silver-plated metal with an ornate repousse design that mimics marcasites or rhinestones. The belt gives off a sparkle from the intricate patterns along the many links.

The belt measures 29 inches long by 1 1/2 inches wide. It's 3 1/2 inches wide at the beautiful working buckle. It weighs 173 grams. Along the belt is a loop for the purpose of hanging a chatelaine of various accessories that the Victorian woman might need...a pencil, scissor, notepad, mirror, etc. There's a wider link that acts as a 'brake' for the buckle loop.

The belt has six holes for adjusting the size and the sliding loop to keep the belt end in place. The open work design has a filigree effect that's spectacular. This antique craft is a long-lost art.

The silverplate finish has not been polished...we leave it to the buyer to decide on altering the original patina.

The belt will fit a waist that's 23 to 28 inches. We're also showing the belt worn as a necklace which works very well. It drapes nicely and makes for the ultimate conversation piece. The loop for the chatelaine can be used to hang a favorite pendant or charm. Excellent antique condition. Circa 1860 to 1880.
