Here is an extremely rare antique piquÃ© purse with a pocket watch that is truly a one of a kind piece that is like no other. PiquÃ© is when a material most often tortoiseshell was inlayed with either silver or gold or a combination of the two resulting in pieces of jewellery and objects of beauty that is like no other. Often found in such pieces such as earrings or brooches, finding it in something like a purse is so exceptionally rare. And then combine this with a watch and you have something which is even more hard to ever find another. The quality of craftsmanship in the case is just exquisite and of the finest quality. In superb condition it measures 80mm across by 24.1mm by 50.7mm thick, and has the most lovely tactile feel to it. With the catch on the side easy to open it then reveals its original velvet lined purse inside which also accesses the back of the watch movement to both wind and set it from here. The movement has been serviced and comes with our twelve month warranty and the dial itself measures a dainty 19.3mm in diameter. No matter how this is displayed or used, this is truly something that once sold, will be exceedingly hard to ever replace. Stock # ES7316 Circa: 1870 $Sold.
