Up for sale is a gorgeous, original Victorian era gold gilt 800 silver chatelaine, made in France. The chatelaine is very ornately detailed with Repousse florals, and there are two inset hand painted medallions in the center. The back of the chatelaine is marked with the Boar's head hallmark, indicating the piece was made in France and the silver content is 800 or higher. There is also a makers mark that I cannot make out. The chatelaine came with a beautiful gold filled pocket watch, but it is not functioning.The chatelaine measures 8 1/4 long and 1 3/4 wide. The piece has a very substantial weight at 3 regular ounces. The chatelaine is in excellent, condition with no dings, splits, or repairs. This is a very fine, rare aesthetic period French chatelaine.
