This charming little watch pocket has been crafted in wool in gros point with a twisted cord edging and hanging loop. There are also two cords which go to a pompom. The actual pocket is largely of deep reddish-brown edged with cream and golden needlework and in the lower section the initials ‘TJ’ have been personalised into the pattern. Above this is a slit which has a gros point edging and this is to provide access to a space for a watch. The back is strengthened with cardboard and silk although much of the silk has now perished. There is a small area of loss of the surrounding cord of less than 1cm and otherwise this watch pocket is in good condition for age. This would make a lovely addition to a collection of folk art, needlework or watch-related items. Please note that the watch included in one of the images is not included. Length 6.25 ins (15.8cm), width 3 ins (7.5cm). Weight 10 grams. This item appears in my book, “How the Watch was Worn, A Fashion for 500 Years” on page 228.
