We may not need watch keys to wind our watches any longer, but we sure are glad they still exist. This late Georgian jewel would have hung on a fancy chain from a dandy's waist coat, alongside an expensive pocket watch. The gold sheeted* key is topped with a trio of collet set agates of different colors. This lovely thing looks great worn as a pendant suspended from your favourite hook and chain assembly. Circa 1830.

*Gold was too soft for use in a tool like a winder. Watch keys were made of steel, then covered in a sheet of gold for prettiness.

Details.....1.91" long. This beauty shows some wear, considering its nearly 200 years old it looks amazing!
