Victorian Wire Tassel For Antique Clothing Or Trim
This tassel came in a large lot I purchase of lockets and watch chains with Fobs. It's obvious it was handmade. I wasn't sure if it was made to be used attached to a piece of Victorian jewelry, so I did some research and found several similar wire tassels, all used on various items. Described as fine bronze bullion tassels, their uses include embroidery items, clergy clothing, umbrella trim, Edwardian clothing, and Victorian lace collars. I am so fascinated with the Victorian workmanship on such interesting items, I never get bored. It measures 2.75 not including the 2.25 loop tie. It is wire and is just incredible when looked at with a loupe. Use it as a pendant or attach it to a brooch as tassels are still very much in vogue for 2013. Condition: Very good; One tassel needs to be re-attached.

Antique Sewing Chatelaine With Silver Thimble & Case
This chatelaine belt is handmade. Metal rings that are 7/8 in diameter are crocheted with soft yellow embroidery thread. A mint green ribbon is looped through the rings making a 36 belt, which was tied in a bow at the waste leaving part of it hanging which held the accessories. The beautiful sterling silver thimble holder is reticulated, or openwork, in a floral pattern. The hallmark, with a WC and arrow going through, is that of the George Webster Co. of Attleboro, Mass. It dates to the early 1900s. It has a chatelaine loop which was one of the items that would normally hang from the belt. It is monogrammed ML and is apparent it was well used for pins. There is also a hand crocheted piece of wool that was used for needles, and a darling crocheted thimble holder with the original thimble. It is a Simons Bro. Co, with the script S inside a shield on the inside top. Outside it reads Sterling, and is a size 8. It has a very unusual Celtic design around the bottom that is hand stamped. The company was in business and registered in 1842. I brought this chatelaine along to one of the antique shows we do and it received a lot of attention from my jewelry customers. One lady told me she knows a shop in her home town that had a couple of these priced $500 and over, so there must be some out there on the market. Condition: Very good; Being over 100 years old the ribbon is fragile, but not dry rotted, and in my opinion should to be replaced. If you chose to do so, it is a very easy fix by the looks of it; just a matter of getting a good match. None of the Sterling pieces have been polished, as it is my custom to leave that to the new owner since once the patina is gone, you'll need to wait another 100 years to get it back.
