Antique Art Deco Era Sterling Silver Chatelaine Pencil - Chester 1924

Collections: Sold Archive

This absolutely darling piece dates to the late Art Deco era and is fully hallmarked for manufacture in 1924 with assay marks for the Chester assay office.

Manufactured by ‘Villiers & Jackson’ who resided in Hockey Hill, Birmingham, this exquisite little collectible item would originally have been worn from a Chatelaine but today would be worn from a silver chain at the throat and of course could still be used for her original purpose as the pencil inside, all 5.8cm of it, is still in perfecter order!

Measuring a pleasing 7cm in length this very pretty châtelain pencil is engraved both sides with a feminine flowing floral design, and to one side a blank cartouche still awaiting someones initials or name.


With bale - 7cm x 1.0cm
Original pencil - 5.8cm

With pencil - 4.28 Grams

Full hallmarks for Chester, date letter ‘y’ for 1924
‘V&J’ - for Villiers & Jackson, Hockley Hill, Birmingham

Very very good antique condition.  No dents to Sterling, minor marks only.  Original pencil, bale etc. Lovely 99 year old condition.

Please note chains are for display only unless otherwise stated.
