Case Watch with Outer and Inner Pair of Enamels


Description Provenance Inscription Credit
Description The dial of this watch is very delicately etched with a scene of a man fishing. The reverse of the outer case is painted with a woman holding a dove. The inner case is engraved and enameled with a polychrome bird. The watch is an example of the 19th century taste for historicism and revivals, as it recalls the decoration of 17th century watches.
Provenance Mrs. Weil, by purchase; Rebecca Ulman Weil, by inheritance; Henrietta Lehmayer Moser, 1936, by inheritance; Liz and Peter Moser, 1958-1959, by gift [from his mother]; Walters Art Museum, 2006, by gift.
