This is a wonderful chatelaine from the late 19th Century Victorian era. It is meant to be clipped at the waist and has chains for two implements. The piece is silver tone, but has no hallmarks and does not test for silver. Most likely it is brass with a silver wash on top.
There is a large tongue shaped clip on the back that would adhere to a waist band or belt. The top has a very elaborate open work design showing great detail. the center shows a queen holding a shield with a lion. Very English.
I just love the design on the two chains. They are very detailed with a fleur-di-lis design. The bottom of the chains have open circles to hang whatever you wish.
The piece is 5" long and 1 3/4" wide. It is in good antique condition, showing some wear to the silver plating. It weighs 28.9 grams.
