Exquisite ornate workmanship with a gold gilt finish, this little chair pocket watch holder has flowers, scroll work, all topped with a white enamel finish with black accents. There is rope trim around the face of the watch portion. Two bevel set turquoise glass cabochons and one larger ruby red glass cabochon adorn the front.
Two little glass crystal bottles have metal covers with flowers - I don't know if they are original to the piece. Overall measurements are 5 inches tall by 3 inches wide by 2 7/8 inches deep. The tiny bottles are 1 1/8 inches square and measure 2 inches to the tip of the covers. There are losses on the enamel - not unusual in an old piece - and the chair does not sit square on the four legs, and teeters a little bit. There are a few very small chips on the inkwell edge, and a very tiny bite on the glass of one of them.
