Inspired by a framed baptismal certificate, dated 1909, that I found at Portobello Market, behind which was concealed a black and white photograph of its child subject, Edith Mary Baldwin in a beautiful garden.
I used the information in the baptismal certificate to investigate the life of Edith. When and where she was born, whom her family was etc. Each and every piece of this collection therefore represents another element of her life.
This surreal, 'Daliesque' pocket watch represents the inspectors prompt arrival at the Baldwin's family house at midnight, when the census report of 1911 was taken.
Pocket Watch with grain set black diamonds in the hands and a garnet set in the fob top. The pocket watch suspends from a signature JdL Necklace with an Edwardian Flintlock Muff Pistol attached along the chain.
- Approx height of wax seal pocket watch with fob top: 63mm
- Approx width of wax seal pocket watch with fob top: 50mm
Please choose from these lengths:
15/18", 18/22" or 22/26"
The seal pendant moves freely along the chain and an additional jump ring is provided 3 inches from the end of each chosen length, to shorten if necessary.
This necklace is made from hallmarked Sterling Silver (925) and can be plated 18ct Rose or Yellow Gold.
Please specify which you would like when you purchase the piece.
A Polished Silver (with plated central clock detail) or Oxidised Silver finish is also available, please inquire if interested.
FURTHER DETAILS ~
The beauty of this piece is that each wax seal is individually hand stamped therefore no two seals will ever look the same.
This pocket watch necklace is also available on a men's albert chain.
Please note ~ each piece is lovingly hand made to order, therefore a delivery time of two weeks is estimated.
All pieces come beautifully packaged in JdL signature vintage style packaging.
