This delightful item is a souvenir from Cannes, France. I believe it dates from the early part of the 20th Century. It was a tourist item, and a useful accessory for a pocket watch, which by now was a popular item in almost every household. It is made of a satin smooth wood in a medium to darker brown color. It says CANNES on the top and SOUVENIR on the bottom. There is a lovely bird depicted in the center.
The box slides open and then can be propped up to sit on your table or nightstand. There is a recessed compartment, with a notched top to hold your pocket watch. It is lined in faded red velvet.
The box measures 3 1/4" by 2 1/2" and is 7/8" deep. It will hold a watch with a 1 5/8" diameter. The watch is NOT included. It is in good vintage condition.
