INNER CASE : Hallmarked for London, 1878, maker HWG? and with the movement serial number (55835). The hinge and catch are fine and the case snaps shut properly. The silver is in excellent condition with no repairs. The small half hunter crystal has a few scratches but no chips or cracks. A nice heavy case.

Richard Webb is listed in Brecon between 1868 and 1899. This is excellent and unusually late example of a verge movement which had been superseded by the lever many years earlier.
