Chris,

Looks to be a very nice example, not being my field of collecting at all, what was the purpose of these? Have seen them in the past at Fairs and always walked past.

Regards Simon.

If I understand correctly, thgey were kind of a watch fob, worn on the pocket watch, or on the pocket watch chain. As they do not seem to be very praticle, I assume they were more of the keepsake....

Thanks Chris, attractive items, are they an expensive item to collect?

What a numpty I am!

I've always wondered what a beer tip (my translation that has only ever made sense to me) was for, and now I know.

Thanks for asking the question Simon and thanks for the education Chris :)
