Antique French Napoleon III pocket watch casket c.1860


This is an antique French pressed brass and bevelled glass pocket watch casket used for the bedside table. These were used to put everything from pocket contents to jewelry at your bedside during the night. This example makes a gentleman's pocket watch into a clock. You could look through the thick beveled glass cover and still view the face of the watch.

One would also place cufflinks and other jewelry on the tufted padded lining to keep them safe.There are a few chips on the right bottom panel on the bevelled glass and a wee chip on the right hand side.The interior has the old original lining in silk satin which has shredded over time but this is typical for its age. It is a nice display item with lots of character that wont break the bank.
