Show and Tell Friday: A Collection of Antique Pocket Watches

Here it is Friday again and time for another "Show & Tell" hosted by our lovely Cindy at
My Romantic Home.
My hubby has been collecting vintage pocket watches for years and here is just a small portion of his collection.....he found these lovely burlwood cases to hold and display some of his watches....he put one on his Christmas list for the last two years.
I think this is a terrific way to display his watches and still keep the dust off of them and they are space saving as well.
Take a hop over to My Romantic Home and see all the other participants in "Show & Tell" Friday.

Have an enjoyable weekend and thanks in advance for your comments!With the lid open

The boxes stack nicely on top of each other.....great for space saving.
