Antique Miniature Chatelaine Mirror Pendant | 1916 Edwardian Sterling Silver Rouge Compact, Double Reducing Mirrors - 30 Inch Sterling Chain

$245.00

An exquisite little Edwardian chatelaine pendant that is both beautiful and practical.

This miniature hand mirror opens to reveal a second inner mirror and a gilded inner compartment, likely to have once held face powder but a perfect locket for a special love token or medication. The mirror is delightful worn on a long chain and perfect for running repairs to makeup!

Intriguingly, the mirrors are 'reducing mirrors'; tiny as they are, they reflect a whole face or parts of, depending on the distance.
