Antique Victorian Swiss Sterling Silver Pocket Watch
Antique Swiss sterling silver pocket watch c.1888 featuring hand painted bright gold detailing and dark red roman numerals set onto a white enamel background. The front and the back of the watch has beautiful elaborate engravings.
The watch has a good weight and it is tactile to touch with the smooth glass on the front and the engravings on the body of the piece. Once the watch is wound up it has a lovely ticking noise.
To operate the watch a small key is provided to gently wind the watch up at the back of the watch and set the time. Please note the mechanisms are very delicate.
This piece is very decorative, it would work very well on a pocket watch chain for a wedding or as a statement necklace.
998AA, 0.935, Three Standing Bears
The watch has a number of hallmarks, three bears and 0.935 indicating the piece is set in sterling silver, the three bear hallmark was introduced in 1888. The ring at the top of the watch has two bears and a makers mark. This piece would have been designed to be exported to the UK because of the three bears, this indicated the silver weight was high enough for the British standards.

Type of Earrings
Throughout history earring styles have changes from delicate Edwardian screws to showstopping 1980's pieces.
Wire Back: Until the late 1800s fish hook or shepherd hook earrings were the most popular style of earring. These types of earrings are confortable and secure to wear.
Screw Back: Screw back earrings were invented in 1894 this allowed women to wear earrings without piecing their ears. The earring back has a screw which applies pressure to the earlobe to keep the earring in place.
Clip On: Clip on earrings started to became popular in the 1920's up to the 1980's. Wearing clip on earrings is particular good if the earrings are very large, as they do not drag the ear lope down. A clip earring is spring-loaded to confortably hold the earring on the earlobe.
