Gold chatelaine and case watch. The chatelaine has a large gilded brass hook and each of its hangers has a gilded brass backing. In the centre an oval cartouche contains a painted enamel of a bird on a branch with a border of white enamel dots around the outside. Three chains connect to the lower hanger on which is a painted enamel of a child holding a butterfly. From this hang five chains. Two inner ones are vacant and the centre one holds the watch with white enamel dial and gold hands.
1776 AD - 1800 AD
