This is an attractive standing frame for holding a pocket watch. The main section of the frame is covered with deep green velvet and there is a central section of decorative silverplate which has a circular hole in the middle. A strong pin at the top would support the bow of a watch and the circle below would hold the watch itself with a chain then hanging free. This would have been used at night to hold the watch securely and probably placed on a bedside table for ease of viewing the watch during the night. At the back of the stand is a typical support with ribbon to keep the stand upright. The overall condition is good for age and this piece would present one of your special watches from your collection in a unique manner. Maximum height 5.5 ins (14cm), width 4.25 ins (10.4cm). Weight 132 grams. This item appears in my book, “How the Watch was Worn, A Fashion for 500 Years” on page 226. Insured Air Mail Post with tracking to the USA would be $28.50 USD - with no tracking is cheaper. For shipping cost to other countries, please contact us.
