Stock No. : 0769
J. & R. Buckley
Hartshead, Lancs., 1810
Silver pair cases
MOVEMENT : Signed and numbered (167). Gilded verge movement with engraved and pierced balance cock. Good original condition and running well.
DIAL : 40 mm, cream enamel. Good condition except for one long hairline running across the bottom of the dial.
This dial looks a little later than 1810 so is probably a mid 19th century replacement.
INNER CASE : 45.5 mm. London hallmarks for 1810 and maker’s mark TC. Very good condition. The high dome bull’s eye crystal is perfect. The hinge is fine and the case snaps shut nicely.
OUTER CASE : 54 mm. Matching hallmarks to the inner. Again the case is in good condition with some owners names scratched onto the inner back. The hinge is fine and the case snaps shut nicely. The catch button has been worn down and has been lead filled.
Richard Buckley is listed at Hartshead, Ashton under Lyme, Lancashire circa 1790.
