Becky Sharp’s watches

“Vanity Fair” by William Thackeray 

November/December 2015

“The General, her slave and worshipper, had made her many very handsome presents, in the shape of cashmere shawls bought at the auction of a bankrupt French general’s lady, and numerous tributes from the jewellers’ shops, all of which betokened her admirer’s taste and wealth. As for ‘tickers’, as poor Rawdon called watches, her apartments were alive with their clicking.”
