Timelessly beautiful and very useful, this sterling silver chatelaine compact from the early 1900s is expertly made and perfectly finished. The case has a soft gold washed interior and the original mirror.
As shown, the case looks lovely worn on a long chain, a unique locket or great for holding medication.
+ All the details
The inside of the case has full hallmarks for sterling silver from Birmingham, England and the year 1919 with the maker's mark 'ALLD' for the renowned English silversmiths Adie & Lovekin Ltd. The large original suspension ring is also punched for sterling.
Size: 1.6 inch or 41mm in diameter, with a slim profile doming to 8mm.
Condition: Very, very good. No repairs or splits, a few small, soft dents, no nasty scratches. The mirror is excellent and the hinge is in perfect condition allowing the lid to close snugly. The case is smooth and a delight to handle.
Please note - any dark patches are camera reflections and the sky in the mirror is reflected from a gorgeous New Zealand Day!
Age: 1919 (98 years of age)
Weight: - 13.5gms
What a beauty - I watch out for Adie & Lovekin pieces as the are always, always lovely. Expertly made and with wonderful natural patina, the case looks fabulous on a necklace chain.
