In a very unique form, of a Greek temple with a pediment on top. The piece is composed entirely of thick wood. At the base is a well or opening for small trinkets. The decor includes dancing female nymphs, two Napoleonic eagles, and a classical Grecian wreath. Surrounding the edges are reticulated bands or fretwork. The center is fitted with a green velvet circular mount with a hanger on top, for a pocket watch. Will hold a standard pocket watch, the green velvet circle, for example, measures 2" in diameter. In overall good antique condition, no damage to note and the metal retains a nice patina. The green velvet shows wear commensurate with age. Pocket watch in the photo not included.
