19th C Chinese Silver Chatelaine Needle Case

This lovely silver needle case is in the shape of a vase which serves as a guard for needles. Needles would have been placed in the cylindrical barrel that slides into the bottom of the vase. The belt hook depicts a bat in repousse design while carved into the vase are two of the eight immortals, Lan Ts'ai-ho and Tie Guai Li. Dangling below the vase is a white jade bead with a very small metal tassel. Made of Chinese silver and in excellent condition, we date this piece from mid- to late 1800s. The entire chatelaine measures 6 inches long.
