A late 18th century gilt metal single suspension chatelaine, with an inset painted enamel/shell panel showing a single figure.
French or Swiss, probably around 1780.
The gilt suspension chain is complete, terminated with a hook. A combination of silver and gilt over brass, with 4 cherubs surrounding the panel.
The enamel is in quite good condition, though with 3 chips around the edge. The panel is backed with mother of pearl, which is complete but with 2 cracks.
The gilt metal shows even wear to the gilding, but no damage or pieces missing.
