MOVEMENT : Excellent brightly gilded movement with round pillars and pierced and engraved wheel shaped balance cock. The movement is signed “Pickett & Rundell” and numbered (704). It is running well.
DIAL : The white enamel dial is about 38 mm in diameter. It is in nice condition with some light surface scratches and two light hairlines, one short one right on the edge at 5 and the other running from 3 towards the centre. There are a couple of very small chips on the edge but no repairs.
INNER CASE : Maker’s mark TH. The hinge is in good condition and the case closes nicely. High dome crystal in good condition with a couple of light scratches but no chips. The bow and pendant are fine without the usual repaired join to the case. The case is in good condition with no dents. The gilding is complete on the inside and worn on the sides and pendant.
OUTER CASE : Diameter 49mm. Again the hinge is good. The catch and release button are intact although the button is slightly worn down. The gilding is evenly worn down to the brass.
Loomes lists Pickett & Rundell in London between 1775 to 1783.
