A Regency Tunbridge 'whitewood ware' watchstand modelled as a castleated gatehouse. English circa 1820.
Unique to the Tunbridge Wells area of Southern England is the manufacture of painted sycamore and birch architectural models that conceal various functions, usually for the ladies of Regency England. This is a particularly rare form and appears as the watchtower when a pocket-watch is placed in the holder overnight.
