Antique gilded bronze and opaline pocket watch holder. Fabulous gold bronze mesh in delicate folds surround the opening for the watch. A handpainted opaline bowl sets on top of an ornate bronze base. The bowl holds the watch chain, rings, or other jewelry. The watch opening measures 1.75" diameter. The bowl measures 5.25" by 4.75" and does have several small chips where the white opaline is showing through (see last photo). This does not detract from the piece. The piece dates form the late 19th century.
Pocket watch is not included in this listing, but may be purchased separately. Please inquire, if interested.
