How it works


A Pocket watch chain made by a Boer prisoner of war in India in 1902. There is a very old ticket accompanying this item which identifies its origin and date although, unfortunately, not the maker.

Provenance: The grandson of Afrikaans author J. Albert Coetzee.

The watch chain is in very good condition.
