What it is:

Cabinet card measuring 4.25 x 6.5 inches.


What I know about it:

Photographer is Suddard [probably J. F. Suddard] of Fall River, Massachusetts.  Otherwise no information.



I was having a conversation the other day with a costumer friend about men wearing pocket watches and other fob-like jewelry attached to their vests vs. attached to their jacket lapels.  This photo reminded me that women wore such jewelry, too.  I’m assuming this is a pocket watch, though I’m happy to hear if anybody thinks it’s something else.  By the way, click here to see another photo by this same photographer.

  1. Fall River, MA – also home to Lizzie Borden.

  2. I don’t think I’ve ever seen an ornament like that–thanks for posting! Also, her face reminds me of Elijah Wood’s.

    • Funny about Elijah Wood, though I see what you mean, with her delicate features and elfin eyes. If you Google something like “woman wearing a pocket watch”, you’ll find similar images, though this one is certainly more on the ornamental end of the spectrum.
