An English Victorian pocket watch stand/holder in a horseshoe shape set inside a stirrup with the addition of a spur. A nice addition for the Equestrian Decorative Arts or pocket watch collector.
The shoe shaped holder has seven nails which have been enameled a deep purple. The enamel is quite thick and has a few small chips on the edge. The holder is missing a part as seen by the screws on the back and the lack of a holder for the watch. One side near the screw does have a break. When I acquired this piece in London, a ribbon was used to suspend a display watch. It allows greater use of the piece and does not restrict it to a certain size watch. I feel a small leather strap with buckle would be an even better choice.
Please note the watch is for display purposes only (besides it does not work)
English, Circa 1880
