Silver pair cases
Verge movement


MOVEMENT : The gilded verge fusee movement, with engraved and pierced balance cock, is signed and numbered (431). It is running well.

INNER CASE : Diameter 42mm. Silver hallmarks for London, 1763, maker IK. Good overall condition thought the bow is worn and the pendant has been reattached to the case. Nice high dome bull’s eye crystal with light scratches but no chips or cracks. The hinge and catch are fine and the case snaps shut nicely.

OUTER CASE : Diameter 50 mm. Silver hallmarks matching the inner. The hinge and catch are again fine and the case snaps shut. The catch button is dented but otherwise the silver is in good condition.
