Celtic Hues Belt Hook Chatelaine


Product Information

New post Edwardian Celtic Knot Design Chatelaine. Chatelaines are an adornment used by both men and women and usually fastened to belt or pocket. They typically have 3 - 7 chains bearing hooks on which to hang small articles such as watches, keys, seals, writing tablets, scissors, and purses. The word chatelaine is derived from a word meaning the keeper of a castle, thus the person entrusted with the keys. Chatelaines were particularly popular during the 18th century and ranged from very simple to very ornate (gold with diamonds). Chatelaines could still be found through the early 20th century commonly worn to distinguish ones position, for instance the wearing of a Chatelaine would distinguish the head housekeeper from the other servants. 

Hand cast in lead free pewter this chatelaine measures              and only comes in a belt clip backing.
