This spectacle chatelaine is very stylish. It is constructed of a pierced silverplate plaque with stylized griffin, hinged waist hook with a ring for attachment of a chain, and two simple chains which pass to the spectacle holder itself. This is, again, of a pierced/filigree design including lion’s heads and a central shield. The back is plain. The interior is lined on its back wall with dark blue velvet. The condition is very good for age. This piece could be completed with a pair of the small spectacles of the late 19th century-era. Such pieces can look very elegant if worn, particularly with the insertion of a lace or net handkerchief tucked in the top instead of spectacles. Maximum length 11.75 ins (29.8cm), maximum width 1.75 ins (4.5cm). Weight 106 grams. Insured Air Mail Post with tracking to the USA would be $32.00 USD - with no tracking is cheaper.
