Steampunk Telescope, Plane & Compass Locket Chatelaine Necklace ...
***** THE AVIATOR'S CHATELAINE *****
A Fabulous Centrepiece of a brass aeroplane with moving propellers . It measures approx 3 & 3/4 inches across.
I have carefully pierced 2 holes - one on either wing - to enable it to be used as a necklace, along with bronze plated rollo chain measuring a maximum length of 16.5 inches (NOT including the width of the plane).
It fastens with a bronze plated lobster clasp & because of this can be made shorter by clasping along the chain. Again, I am happy to alter the chain to your requirements :)
Suspended from the centre loop at the bottom of the aircraft is a brass oval shaped locket ( approx 22 x 29 mm ). It is imprinted with an image of a compass.
This image is translucent in places which allows the natural patina of the brass to show though in places, adding to its vintage charm ...
The front & back of the locket is then coated with a layer of sealant to protect both you & the locket (but please refrain from getting this item wet) .
The locket is openable & there is room inside for 2 oval images.
Then using the same chain as the necklace section a miniature brass telescope hangs on a vintage brass patina clip. These telescopes are vintage brass & so may have slight markings but it only adds to their charm.
As you can see from the pictures this can either be closed up or extended for use & it IS usable & works as a small telescope ! When closed it measures 1 & 5/8 inches and when extended measures over 3 inches.
I am sure that you will agree this is another stylish OOAK unique piece that is sure to be noticed.
As usual, it will come to you wrapped, ready to give (even to yourself) in a lidded box to prevent damage on his journey to you...
