French Gilt Metal Chatelaine Antique Victorian c1870.

This elegant and quality Chatelaine dates to around the 1870s and is possibly French. Highly decorated in the high Gothic revival style it is constructed of silver and gilt pierced metal with a wooden fan. As a complete set it includes a pencil and holder, notebook holder, smelling salt bottle (minus cork) and a fan. All this hangs from a matching belt clip. 

It is offered in very good original condition overall except for the fan which is A/F due to the silk needing to be reattached in places.

Dimensions of fan:22 x 40 cm or 8.7 x 15.7 inches.

Dimensions of note case 5.5 x 4 x 0.5 cm or 2.2 x 1.6 x 0.2 inches.

Weight combined: 182 grams or 117 penny weight.
