This is a Scandinavian-style/Continental silver chatelaine with ring and hook for holding a ball of thread. It is quite ornate with a stylized helmet at the top and folded leaves around a central sculpture. It has a tongue at the back for placement over a belt or waistband. There are at least five small holes that could have been for extra chains and another ring at the bottom of the main waist plaque. This style of wool or thread holder was apparently not uncommon on the Continent. The condition is good for age with some slight indentations in the fine silver leaves and the possibly missing chains. Apart from this, this makes a very interesting and unusual addition to a collection of knitting or needlework-related items. Maximum length 4.5 ins (11.4cm). Weight 18 grams. This item appears in my book, “Chatelaines, Utility to Glorious Extravagance” on page 218.
