CompleteOrnate Antique Sewing ChatelaineEnglish * Circa 1890s This antique golden colored metal sewing chatelaine is wonderfully ornate and complete with 4 chains and 100% sewing items. The waist plaque has old Greek coins surrounded by scrolls and flowers. The chain links have lacy floral pierced patterns and the tools are embossed with matching repoussé floral designs . The tools include a thimble holder with a nice thimble, a pin cushion in the form of a book, a needle case and a scissors sheath with steel scissors.
The chatelaine is in excellent condition with no loss, dents or other damage. The little steel scissors have the original sharp points and cut but could use sharpening. The thimble is lined with silver and is made of a golden metal alloy. It is in round with no holes and the band has hand and wrigglework engraving. It's about an American size 7. The needlecase top screws on securely. The aqua blue velvet lining the pin cushion, scissors sheath and thimble holder is original and in nice condition. The clip is sturdy and strong and the chatelaine measures almost 11 3/4" from top to bottom. I think this chatelaine is all original.
