This is such a gorgeous, original antique chatelaine!! The brooch and attachments are all in excellent condition. The overall length of the entire piece is 8 3/4" long. I will describe the brooch first and then each attachment (starting from left to right using the first picture). The brooch itself is in excellent condition with five original chains. The piece has a very detailed scrolling design with two griffins on either side of the cartouche, having a monogram of "M.W.C." The brooch has no dings, splits, holes or repairs, and is marked sterling on the loop where the pin goes. It measures 2 3/4" by 2 1/4". The aidememoire has a fantastic, very ornate design with a pineapple at the bottom. It has six interior pages in excellent condition. The back is marked "Sterling 5" with the Kerr axe hallmark. The aide memoire measures 2 7/8" by 1 7/8". The next attachment is a needle or sewing pin holder. It still has some original pins inside the holder. It also has a very detailed, high relief design. It is in excellent condition with no dings, splits, holes or repairs. It is marked "Sterling 3" also with the Kerr axe hallmark. It measures 2 1/2" long. The mirror in the middle has an ornate, high relief rose design. It is also in excellent condition with only a few very small dings around the edge of the mirror. The mirror itself is in overall very good condition with just some light spotting on the edges. It is beautiful, and clearly marked "Sterling 6" with the Kerr axe hallmark. It has a diameter of 1 1/2". The next attachment is a gorgeous, large vinaigrette featuring a lovely cherub face. The vinaigrette is in excellent condition with only a couple of very very tiny dings. There are no large dings, splits, holes or repairs. The pierced top is held on by a tiny chain which is in great condition and the top fits well and is very secure. The vinaigrette measures 3 3/4" long. This is such a beautiful piece. The last attachment is a card case, I believe. It is very high relief and beautifully detailed with an angel taking a beautiful woman to heaven. This piece is really fantastic as well. It is in excellent condition with only one small ding on the back of the case. It is clearly marked "Sterling 1" with the Kerr hallmark. The case measures 3" by 1 1/4". This is such a fine, original Victorian Era chatelaine made by William Kerr. Thanks for looking. Please send payment by paypal only within 3 days of the sale end. International buyers are welcome.
