I purchased this item on ebay. It was advertised as a Chatelaine. But I am not certain. It is gold 2 1/2 inches in length with an 8 inch chain and interesting clasp at the end of the chain. No makers marks, but beautiful detailing on the head of the pin plus the twisted centers of the pin shafts.
My passion is hatpins, but I love this little pin? Can anyone out there tell me for certain what era, maybe the maker, and use of this pin? I don't understand the chain if it was a hairpin? My mystery will be solved with all you experts again. Thanks so much. blingiton1948
