Uncle Albert’s Timepiece Ear Cuff
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.
