$240.00

A beautiful pair of Victorian beaded watch pockets. They have a red, hand-worked tapestry ground and are opulently beaded with opaline beads, clear and white glass beads, and cut steel beads in gold tone.  The beading is so thick, it gives each pocket surface impressive dimension. At the back of one pocket, a hand-written poem ~ “If a watch ye have / This must ye do / Pocket your watch / And watch your pocket too.”

Both pockets are in excellent condition with no damage other than a few minor moth nibbles to the reverse on both. 7”L X 5 1/2”W.
