Whimsy Watch Pocket Antique
A crafter created this Beaded Antique Watch Pocket Whimsy with red, clear and blue seed beads on red cotton fabric. Polished cotton covers the back. The eight remaining tassels are made with blue and brown basket beads and clear seed beads. Although one tassel is missing, the piece remains in good condition with very little bead loss on the pictorial design.
It is a classic example of a Beaded Whimsy tourist souvenir. Native American crafters in the border regions between Canada and the United States at the turn of the 20th century created many of these whimsies for the tourist trade. This whimsy comes in the shape of a wall pocket that holds your pocket watch. This Beaded Whimsy will make an unusual addition to your antique or whimsy collection!
It measures approx. 3.5″ x 2.75″ not including the Basket Bead loops.
One of a kind!
