Please take a moment to read the entire description and view all of the photographs. Presented is a wonderful antique late 18C/early 19C Dutch silver chatelaine clip with a watch holder. The clip depicts a classical figure.
The watch holder depicts cherubs engaged in various activities at a dock--one has caught a fish, another is tying a package, one appears to hold a staff of Asclepius, etc. There are ships visible in the background.
The case is has removable linings of purple velvet on green leather--perhaps the original linings. The watch case is attached with chains and there is a central chain with its original clasp that will hold the watch loop and keep the timepiece in place and properly oriented. Today you could also use it to hold a decorative pendant or locket. A charming and uncommon piece!
Various markings to some of the rings and elsewhere. The style of the piece looks late 18C/early 19C to me, and some Dutch silver was marked long after it was made with such stamps. Outer diameter of watch holder is 1 1/2 and inner diameter is about 1 1/4/31.75mm--it should hold a watch up to about 30mm. Very good antique condition--no damage or splits, but slightly out of round in places.
