Full image caption

Chatelaine. A late 18th century French cut steel chatelaine. The design is in three sections, oval polished steel plates are overlaid with pierced three-colour gold trophies. The subjects are symbolic; the music trophy with a torch and fruit represents the Senses, the doves are for Joy and the basket of flowers represent Knowledge. The chatelaine itself stands for the dignity of the married state.


1765 AD - 1775 AD
