The mistress of a chateau would have worn a Chatelaine, a belt with useful household appendages. They could include items like a thimble, watch, key and in this case a small purse. The chain mail purse was popular in the 1860’s-1900. This sourced example is in wonderful antique condition and can still hold a coin or two.  The addition of a cut steel buckle half from the same time period enhances this lovely necklace. Be still my heart!

Features include:

  • antique chatelaine purse
  • antique cut steel buckle half
  • vintage and antique chain
  • finished length is 40” (adjustable on request)
