Richard Upjohn
Exeter, 1770
Silver pair cases
Verge movement


MOVEMENT : The gilded verge fusee movement, with engraved and pierced balance cock, is signed and numbered (1275). It is running well.

DIAL : The white enamel dial is about 36.5 mm in diameter. It is in good condition with just a few surface scratches, a tiny edge chip at 7 and two very light hairlines from the centre. No repairs.

INNER CASE : Diameter 40.5 mm. Silver hallmarks for London, 1828, maker JK. Good overall condition and nice high dome bull’s eye crystal with no damage. The hinge has one sleeve damaged but the catch is fine and the case snaps shut nicely.

OUTER CASE : Diameter 46.5 mm. Silver hallmarks matching the inner. The hinge and catch are again fine and the case snaps shut.

Although later that the movement, the pair case is of late 18th century style and in very nice condition. May have been made for this movement.
