Title Chamberlain's key/insignia, Viennese imperial court
Nationality Austrian
Period c 1860-1918
Price £120.00

This device was worn by Austrian court chamberlains as a symbol stitched into a pocket of the dress coat. It represents the key which every chamberlain would have carried as a symbol of office. It appears to be fire gilt on base metal of some sort and is in reasonable condition with most of its original gilding intact.

It is just under 13.5cm high altogether.

testimonials

Thanks very much for the bayonet. I am very happy, I think your photos of your items are great because nothing is hidden and you can clearly see them. (Unlike some other dealers.) Everything was as you describe, I will be keeping a eye on your site for any further bayonets for my collection.

Hanger arrived safe and sound 11.30ish today. Very pleased, it's as expected. Your excellent pics make all the difference in terms of confident buying over the net. As a matter of interest, the frog, which as you said is very a/f, is, as you thought, 'spot on'. On closer inspection it is a mk.1 Naval Frog, designated 'for cutlasses'. Date seems around 1860ish give or take.

By the way, I think your site is very user friendly. Seems to work much better than many and up to date, a rarity!!!
