antique chatelaine Antique Victorian chatelaine bag--actually, bags--made of red knitted silk with cut steel beads knitted into the bag and as tassels on the flaps and at the base of the bags. Tiny, exquisitely constructed bags, these measure 3 1/2" long, with the tassels adding 1 1/2", by 2" wide. They are attached to the ring which would have been attached to the wearer's belt. Including the ring and the tassels, these bags measure 9" long. This antique chatelaine is in excellent antique condition. It is fragile, however. You should frame it.
