John Jamison
London, c1810
Gilt pair cases
Verge movement


MOVEMENT : Gilded verge fusee movement, with engraved and pierced balance cock. Signed and numbered (221). A good clean movement in excellent condition and running, though gaining about two minutes per hour.

DIAL : White enamel, 42 mm in diameter. It is in very good condition with just one very light hairline running between 3 and 5. Nice matching blued steel hands.

INNER CASE : Gilt/brass, 46 mm in diameter. Maker’s mark TG but also stamped JAMISON LONDON with the movement serial number 221. Very good condition with no repairs and just one light bruise. Wear to the gilding on the bow and pendant. The hinge is fine and the bezel snaps shut nicely. Good high dome bull’s eye crystal with no damage.

OUTER CASE : Gilt/brass, 52.5 mm in diameter. Maker’s mark WH and owners initials engraved on the back. The hinge and catch are fine and the case closes nicely. The catch button is silver coloured so probably a replacement. The case is in fine condition though the gilding has worn from the outer surfaces.
