In days gone by, women were not afforded the luxury of pockets, not that we had much to put in them - thanks patriarchy! Some of the wealthier women however might have enjoyed the beautifully eccentric accessory that is the chatelaine, a little waist chain to keep everything a lady might need to hand.
Of course, I had to put a very Nearer the Moon twist on my own interpretation of this historical piece. This Chatelaine features the key to your heart/manor/happiness (delete as applicable), a locket to keep a piece of your loved one's - or enemy's - hair and likeness, a lucky penny, a spider familiar, a lobster clasp to attach a personal trinket and a traditional Victorian silk pocket to either store the attachments in whilst walking or to keep anything else you might like.
Attached to a fully adjustable satin elastic waist belt, this unique one size fits all accessory will leave your hands free for all sorts of things that are much more fun than carrying a handbag.
- Adjustable waist elastic strap (24-42 inches)
- No fastening
- 6 attachments - Coin, Spider, Locket, Key, Empty Lobster Clasp, Silk pocket with slit opening
- Satin Elastic // Zinc Alloy Charms // Silver Plated Chain
Please allow up to 6 weeks for your Chatelaine to be made.
