The watch works, then doesn't... will have it looked at. The cherub pounds on the arrow heads. A "forgeron" is a blacksmith, hence "the little blacksmith".

I believe this is a 1900 watch +/- some 10 years, but I could be mistaken. It's brass, and is missing the base, which were small pieces of marble, glued down with some metal spike dowels of some sort that are embedded into the block.

I'd like to know anything I can about this. Thanks, in advance for your help.
