Stock No. : 0676
Thetford, Norfolk, c1820
MOVEMENT : Verge movement, signed and numbered (47696). Complete, original and in nice clean condition, and running, though a little fast (gains about 5 minutes per hour).
DIAL : The white enamel dial is about 40.5 mm in diameter. There is some damage around 12 (cracks/hairlines) and at the centre (chip).
CASE : The gilt case is 44.75 mm in diameter (excluding pendant etc.) and is in very good condition throughout. The gilding is complete with no loss, so the case has probably been regilded in the past. The high dome crystal is also fine, both hinges are good and the front cover closes nicely and springs open fully when the crown is depressed.
