Emanuel SOLID SILVER CHATELAINE WITH THREE MATCHING ATTACHMENTS. This is a very fine quality Beautiful Extremely Rare Edwardian Solid Silver Chatelaine with three matching attachments, this was crafted by the highly sought after Victorian Silversmith Lawrence Emanuel. The chatelaine and all attachements are crafted by Lawrence Emanuel, Birmingham 1902/3, comprising of a cast triangular top section featuring Diana & Cupid within a scroll and foliate border, with part hallmarked hinged clipto the back, this supporting a further four part marked cast sections similarly decorated, which in turn support three sections of navette and octagon panel chain, each terminating in a swivel catch fastening, with a length of matching style chain dropping from the top section to either side, each of the three lengths of chain supporting in turn the most stunning attachments, you will see a beautiful oval mirror with a sliding cover and also an oval pin cushionn with a deep blue velvet cushion and finally the most beautiful. Thermometer holder case, all these have the most beautiful faux Crocodile decoration which is so very rare, they all have the same hallmarks as the chatelain,, it is extremely rare to find matching attachments that were crafted for this actual Chatelaine with matching hallmarks.

The quality of the craftsmanship is superb, this would have once belonged to a very wealthy Lady of the household in the Edwardian period or a house keeper from a wealthy family , someone a little like Mrs Hughes from Downton Abbey. This was many many years ago when times were so very different, if this could talk i can just imagine what fascinating stories it could tell, this is so very tactile and once held it has the most wonderful feel.
