I created the vintage watch pieces connect with White Rabbit. The White Rabbit always carries his watch to let him know about the time he should be to arrive for the Queen of Hearts. The White Rabbit is always worried that he is constantly late (me ALL THE TIME). Clocks, within Wonderland, indicate the transition between sense and nonsense and incorporate time into the discussion. In the opening pages, it is the White Rabbit’s pocket watch stirs that Alice’s curiosity causing her adventure down the rabbit hole:

 

When the Rabbit actually took a watch out of its waistcoat-pocket, and looked at it, and then hurried on, Alice started to her feet (Carroll, Wonderland 10).

 

The White Rabbit’s pocket watch is the only clock that appears before Alice enters Wonderland/Looking-Glass and unlike the Mad Hatter’s watch or the Looking-Glass clock is not broken and does not have an old man’s face. As the only normal and intact symbol of time, the White Rabbit’s pocket watch might represent social conventions.

 

‘belatedness, anxiety, physical props like the watch, all bespeak the individual under the cosh of time-regulated society’
