Hello- I′m hoping that someone can help me to learn more about this Chatelaine that belonged to my grandmother. Thank you in advance for any assistance.

The chatelaine itself is silver plated as previously identified by the EPNS. As it is only silver plated, there is no way of dating it precisely but given its style and the fact that it became illegal to use the crown mark on silver plate in 1896, I would confidently date this in the period 1885 - 1895.

Please note that I cannot make out exact details of hallmarks but I can see some and it looks to me as though the aide memoir (note pad with ivorine pages)is sterling silver. The long tubular case beside it could be a needle case, cheroot holder case or a pencil case and I suspect its a pencil case as a pencil is required to write on the aide memoir. It too is likely to be sterling silver but I cannot make out any marks. Additional close up photos of these and any marks on the individual items would be of benefit.
Finally check the chains and see if they have a tiny mark on each link as its possible the chains are silver and simply the chatelaine clip is plated.

cheers,
Steve
