Early Hollycraft  Austro-Hungarian Revival Chatelaine - image 1 of 11

Fit for Royalty! Early Hollycraft unsigned Austro Hungarian revival chatelaine having everything: brooch, fur/jacket clip, pendant, swag box chains! It basically has 3 sections and measurements are: brooch 1 3/4 inches by 1 3/4 inches; fur/jacket/dress clip is 1 inch by 7/8 inch; pendant drop is the largest at 2 1/2 inches by 2 1/4 inches with the box chain tassel adding another inch! The swag box chains (heavily age patinated) are 6 1/2 inches, 7 1/2 inches and 8 1/2 inches respectively.

The center green marbled cabochons are all 14mm by 10mm although the one on the brooch section could have been replaced. These cabochons are surrounded by tiny faux pearls and blue rhinestones. The pendant has tiny white enamel flowers. Both pendant and brooch have 5mm pearls and red, blue and green rhinestones. The metal is an antique gold color but the backs are fairly shiny so I'm guessing the fronts were purposely "antiqued". Very good vintage condition on all elements but the piece would welcome a little TLC.....or not! Please use the zoom feature to see details. Hollycraft did not sign early pieces and this is circa 1940s. Also, don't know if this was the original configuration of the three parts but I'm showing it as I purchased it from a fine estate in Miami some time ago.

Would love see this piece swag across a jacket front or dress from one side to the other and there are so many ways to play with this. Definitely a collector's item! It will be carefully wrapped and packed in a pretty zippered brocade gift pouch for keeping or gifting. Email questions are always welcome.

Thank you for shopping at Miami Moon!
