Practical and decorative, this item would store the imposing pocket watch of a gentleman and become a very decorative ornament for the mantlepiece. Italian, late Seventeenth Century, of finely carved wood, it retains most of its original polychrome paint and gilding. Exclusive of the base added for stability and the branch of coral that graces its crest, the piece measures approximately 19-3/4 inches by 6-1/4 inches by 2-1/2 inches.
