This is a most interesting image with six different styles of very early watches shown on the sides. In the centre at the top is a classic 18th century watch chatelaine currently holding one watch key. Beneath is an 18th century equipage (often called a chatelaine) which would have held a central etui with two smaller containers, one possibly for a thimble and the other for smelling salts on a wad of fabric. The chromolithograph was produced by F. Bedford, del et lith.; JB Waring Day & Son Lith. to The Queen. The individual items belonged to various collectors. The equipage is described as a vinaigrette but really seems to be an equipage (the name for chatelaines prior to 1828). The condition of the image is good with some slight foxing. The mat has a fair amount of foxing on one side. The print can be sent within the mat or removed and rolled in a cylinder for postage. This is a most interesting image for collectors of watches, chatelaines or early accessories. Cost of postage will depend on choice and destination.
Measurement of mat 19 ins (48.2cm) x 14.6 ins (37.2cm).
This item appears in my book, “Chatelaines, Utility to Glorious Extravagance” on page 15.
