E-349 - Uncle Albert's Time Piece Earcuff

  • Sale
  • Regular price $35.00


The perfect miniature, 13-hour Lunar time fob watch and its accoutrements from the Victorian era, ingeniously cuffed and pinned around the fortunate dandy's ear.

Inscribed with 'Hora Morti' - the 'Hour of Death', and on the cuff the Latin phrase reads 'Tempus Fugit, Tempus Moritur' - 'Time Flies, Time Dies'.

Uncle Albert knows there are 13 lunar months to the year . . .

A miniature pocket watch pewter stud with glazed dial, chained to a pewter cuff, and hanging from the fine albert chain are a clockwork key and a bronzed shield fob.

(Watch face is not an actual functioning timepiece)
