This is one strange piece. It's a miniature silver model of chastity belt (1940 approx.). The sign in italian reads: "SALVAONORE" ("saviour of one's honor").

    Pure evil right there !! Fortunately once you get the knack these locks are easily picked. ( I watch a lot of documentaries ; ) )

    Hehe... yeah, I still wonder who commissioned this weird object from a craftman...

    Clearly a man. The more things change the more they stay the same in the world of men and politics and the need for control. So sick, but so completely fascinating at the same time! What fun things you have.

    Thanks, Vestawind. I guess you're right, it was a man, but I can't decide if it has a gross humorous/spoof value, or it was intended as a serious reminder of an obscure era, or if it has a more insane, even nostalgic feel... Here in Italy, especially in the Southern regions, weird as it may seem, the concept of "punishing a dishonorable behaviour" was a legitimate and legally accepted motive for uxoricide until the '40s...

    Yeah, that's sweet!
