Love it! It's perfect for my flat screen t.v. which I use for computer screen. Now I've got a big focus in the room of steampunk to introduce to people visiting.

Its really cool, could use a little more shading, looks a tad flat...

Really enjoyed this one. Makes me smile with the addition of the tag in the corner. Good use of color and texture.

I used to have quite the collection but most of them got sold or scrapped over the years.
You are most welcome.

My husbands father was in China when Japan invaded -- he bought a dozen or so wind up watches for $1 each from people who were selling things to try to escape the country. Since he worked in the engine room on his ship his watches were always getting magnetized so he used the old pocket watches and when they got magnetized he threw them overboard. When they got back to the States he had one left, so, out of curiosity, he took it into a watch repair shop to see just what it was. Turned out it was a Renaissance era pocket watch worth several thousand dollars;)

Just curious how many times did he kick himself in the butt remembering all the ones he threw away? :) I know I'd have been doing it till I couldn't walk. I never lucked into anything like that myself but I did get several that were collectors items like a "Star Trek" commemorative piece I recieved as a Christmas present that is now the only piece I still have and the only one I ever actually used. What can I say I'm a total geek and all my friends know it. :)

Richard said he regretted all the ones he threw away, but there wasn't anything he could do about it . . . and no way he could have known about the rarity of the ones he threw away until he got back to the States and could have them appraised.

As they say hind sight is 2020. We all are guilty of this sort of thing from time to time.
