Beaded Watch Pocket in the Form of Watch Chain & Fob, Victorian
This is an attractive beaded watch pocket in the shape of a hexagon with two beaded cords attaching to a more solid section which ends with a fringed triangle of beads. The whole effect is of a stylized watch and fob. The actual holder for the watch is edged with small loops of beads (one loop is missing its beads). The interior of the pocket is of a deep green knitted fabric. This piece would most likely have been used to protect the watch at night as it does not appear practical for day-time use. Apart from the bead loss already mentioned, this little pocket is in very good condition for age. This would be an attractive addition to a collection of unusual bead work or of watch-related items. Maximum length 7.5 ins (19cm). Weight 32 grams.
