Steampunk Pirate Themed Chatelaine, reproduction Victorian chatelaine, chatelaine with scissors and magnifying glass, Brass chatelaine
An Internet search for Victorian chatelaines will show you that these were the height of fashion for the Victorian woman! Wearing these dainty and decorative sewing tools on long chains, suspended from pins or clips at the waist was all the rage for a long stretch in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
Until recently, all you could find were actual antique chatelaines that were prohibitively expensive. And, as many of them were made from sterling silver, people doing costuming and wearing period clothing for specialty shows were reluctant to wear such valuable pieces to costume events.
Replicas to the rescue! An artisan in Britain has started creating replica tools for chatelaines, and we have started creating chatelaine pins, combining the tools in various ways to bring replica finished chatelaines to the market.
The antiqued nickel and brass pin and accessories has a fun pirate vibe, with a small skull piece suspended from the pin. Suspended from the pin are a small (working) brass-toned scissors in a holster of blackened British pewter with a brass toned bow. Also hanging from the butterfly is a pewter magnifying glass ready to help study those mysterious clues or thread a tiny sewing needle. This is the perfect accessory for the busy world traveler!
This is the perfect steampunk chatelaine, for anyone interested in dressing in Victorian garb, or for anyone who adores sewing!
Overall Length of chatelaine: 9" to the bottom of the scissors, about 14" to the bottom of the chains when the magnifying glass is hooked up. The magnifying glass hooks up into the pin for ease of movement when walking around. You unhook it to use it.
Pin is 2.25 inches wide.
Note: This is the end of an era friends! The maker of the small chatelain sewing tools has stopped working, so once we are out of our chatelains, we will not have any more!
