Hand Carved and Painted Birch Wood
Dated '1801'
A very good early Gustavian period example from the Scandinavian Folk Art Tradition, this delightful hand carved Love Token Watch stand is decorated with stylised chip carving incorporating the date ‘1801’, stylised horse heads, a crescent moon finial and heart motifs. It retains the original “rosemaling”, (painted decoration) and is in excellent overall condition.

Watch stands were used in the evenings, to hold pocket watches on mantels or bedside tables, they take the form of small clocks when the watches are in them and also served to keep the watch safe and as they were used daily they reminded the owner of their beloved every morning and evening.
