INNER CASE : Silver, 52 mm in diameter. Hallmarked for Birmingham, 1839, maker’s mark VR. Excellent condition. The hinge is fine and the case snaps shut nicely. Good high dome bull’s eye crystal with light surface scratches but no chips or damage.

OUTER CASE : Silver, 58 mm in diameter. Matching hallmarks to the inner. Again in fine condition with just a couple of small dents on the back. The catch and button are fine and the case closes nicely.

This is a large case, in heavy gauge silver. There is a watch paper in the back, from a Whitby watchmaker (Francis Hall), dated 1886.
