Green Man Chatelaine
A chatelaine is a decorative belt hook or clasp worn at the waist with a series of chains suspended from it. Each chain is mounted with useful household appendages such as scissors, thimbles, watches, keys, etc. Chatelaines were worn by many women in the 19th century. Similar jewelry was also worn by Anglo-Saxon women, as seen from the burial record, but their function is uncertain.
