This is a quality French silver chatelaine (with silver mark for 800 Silver after 1819, with the addition of a maker’s mark). There is also a monogram which is M.M.A.D. It has one S-shaped attachment hook for two long chains which each have an S-hook at the end. An early pair of steel scissors has been added for effect only and would be included at no additional cost, to show how it would have been used. The scissors, although stained, have an attractive flower pattern on the shaped handle but do not cut well. The condition of the actual silver chatelaine is very good for age. For security, the S-hooks could be tightened so they do not come loose. This is a lovely example of a sturdy chatelaine for practical use and such examples were more common in the provinces of France and other European countries. Length of plaque 4.4 ins (11cm). Weight 138 grams.
