Chatelaines were worn to keep handy important items such as keys, watches, magnifying glasses and sewing supplies( scissors, beeswax, charms and thimbles). We also offer a small brass and ivory notebook and mechanical pencil perfect for hanging from a chatelaine. Our Chatelaines are cast here in our shop in lead-free pewter, and are finished by hand. The chatelaine clip onto the waist of your petticoat or apron and both have 5 chains 6 inches long with lanyard clips to keep things securely attached. Measures 3-1/2 inches wide and about 1-3/4 inches high.
