What is a Chatelain

Definition

The word "chatelaine" derives from the Latin word for castle. It refers to the lady who, in the Medieval times, was in charge of the day-to-day castle functions. The chatelaine ordered supplies, did the bookkeeping and supervised the servants. She also taught the children who lived in the castle and served as a guide to the guests. One of her most important responsibilities was to keep the keys to the castle.

Function

Because the chatelaine kept the keys, she needed a place to put them where they would be safe and accessible. By the 17th century a metal jeweled ornament, called a chatelaine, was a popular practical organizing device. It hung from a pocket or attached to a person's belt. Dangling down from the chatelaine would be a few chains and hooks. Keys, a pen, and a note-pad were among the things that could be carried on the chatelaine.

The chatelaine, while still having the useful purpose of organizing the household, also became a fashion accessory that was often given as a wedding present from a husband to his bride. Sewing and needlework were an important part of a young girl's educationand these accessorieswere ideal in organizingnotions. Chatelaines were made of silver, brass, steel, leather, or fabric, depending on the financial status of the household. There was a decorative clip that attached to the waistband with three to seven long chains with clasps suspended from it. If you've seen "The Others" with Nicole Kidman, she is wearing one.

Toward the end of the 19th century, dresses with no waist line (and no place for a chatelaine) became fashionable and the waist chatelaine developed into the brooch type and the fabric type worn around the neck.
