Date : 1875 - 1880
Period : Victorian
Origin : Tunbridge Wells; England

Decoration : Five-square geometric border within banded and continuous key-line stringing; larger mosaic squares to the corners
Size : front face 7.4 x 7.4 cm square; 5.2 cm high

Notes : There were a number of different designs for watch stands, this being one of the least elaborate versions; it is of a near-identical design to labelled versions we have seen which are marked as being made by 'Thomas Barton - late Nye', and the nature of said label gives us the above date range; the aperture of this stand will accommodate a watch of around 43mm in diameter
