plinths displaying running horses, full length male figure; flags and leafy scrolled devices. The case
is surmounted with serpent carved chimneys joining a gallery; all centering a wonderful carved eagle
with glass-bead/copper-tack eyes. The door opens to expose the cavity carved to receive the watch which
hangs within a bow aperture. All surfaces of multi-stepped base are carved. (Missing half inch of
engaged 1/8-inch center plinth molding; doesn’t distract; we can have this restored. 10 by 6.5 by 4”)
