Scarce Antique Georgian Floral Steel Watch Key


Dating to the around the 1780's, a charming little Steel watch key which was likely made in one of the great 'toy' workshops in England to wind an all important pocket watch. From the collection of an enthusiast, the central stylised floral motif sparkles with tiny flat facets and adds prettiness to the practicality of this rarely seen antique piece. A touch over 3cm in length, this little piece would make an original gift as keys have such a significance in our lives.
