Carved Marble Case "Click" to Login or Register

I saw this case at our local repair shop and thought some might be interested is seeing it.

The case is a one-of-a-kind hand carved marble case. The person who brought it to the shop said his grandfather carved it. It had been sitting under the bed for at least forty years.

The case has never held a movement, and that was what brought the person to bring it to the shop. It will be fitted with some mechanism, dial and hands so that it can be put out in the open and be functional.

I think being out from under the bed is a great first step in appreciating the skills of this talented grandfather. I thought some of you would enjoy seeing it also.
