Jewelry / Adornment

Chatelaine hook appears to be made of steel or gunmetal. The top piece is triangular in shape and carved with scroll work and flowerettes. It appears to have an area on left side with apoxy residue where something may have been attached. There is a second winged section hanging below head with jum rings that too is carved. Hanging from this second piece are 5 sections of linked chain. At the ends of three of those sections are clasps to attach something?
