This is a gorgeous marcasite and silver brooch with the fastener behind a bow which suspends a beautiful basket of flowers. If one looks closely, one can see a little lever in the centre of the flowers and when this is pulled forward, a disc drops down to reveal a tiny watch-face which is designed to point upwards so that it can be viewed by the wearer. The watch itself is hidden behind the decorative basket. The dial states ’17 jewels’ and on the back it is marked ‘Silver’ as well as ‘925’. The maker’s mark is rubbed. The watch appears to be in working order and dates from the early 20th century. It is a lovely item as a piece of jewellery in its own right with the bonus of including a tiny watch! Total length 3 ins (7.6cm), width of basket 1.5 ins (3.7cm). Weight 30 grams. This item appears in my book, “How the Watch was Worn, A Fashion for 500 Years” on page 189. Insured Air Mail Post with tracking to the USA would be $33.50 USD - with no tracking is cheaper. For shipping cost to other countries, please contact us.
