Wristwatch for a Doll, with Blue Jumeau Beads, Vintage
Currently on Ruby Lane we have listed a collection of miniature watch accessories suitable for a fashion doll – some for a girl doll and a couple for a boy. They were collected to illustrate the universal use of a watch as a fashion statement and concentrate on the varieties of styles for wearing a watch. Most are vintage re-creations and a couple are from an earlier age. Any would be a desirable addition to any lovely doll. This example is fashioned in the form of a complete wristwatch and band in gilt metal with two blue jumeau beads. The tiny watch has a decorative gilt metal surround with plain back. The glass-covered dial is of cream with black painted Roman numerals and hands. The band is of decorative gilt metal with a simple ring and hook closure. The condition is very good for age with the numerals and hands very slightly rubbed. This would be a very pleasing accessory to add to your fashion doll. Maximum open length 4.25 ins (10.8cm). Weight 4 grams. This item appears in my book, “How the Watch was Worn, A Fashion for 500 Years” on page 210.
