Viktorianische Brillen-Chatelaine, ca. 1870

antikes Brillenetui 1870 1 antikes Brillenetui 1870

This superb chatelaine spectacles case is German and dates to circa 1870. In Victorian times the lady of the house would wear a chatelaine belt, attaching to it all sorts of useful items – scissors, notebook, pin cushion and even her reading glasses in their case. Very ornate design, cast with open sections to show the purple velvet beneath. It is lined with purple velvet. A length of chain is attached to both sides and they hold the clip which has similarly lavish ornamentation on the front. The plain clip behind it is hinged but not springy but it attaches easily to a waistband or belt. Good condition. There is some wear and abrasion on the velvet. The decoration is not included. Very rare to find.
