Stock No. 1478

Andrew Dunlop
London, c1715
Gilt case, 52 mm
Verge escapement


A fine London verge, by an excellent maker, in a later gilt case.

MOVEMENT : Gilt verge movement, with engraved and pierced balance cock and plate. Four square pillars and large silvered regulator disk. Fully signed and numbered (1040).

The movement is in excellent condition throughout and is running well.

DIAL : Later white enamel dial, in very good condition.
Just some very light surface scratches and a little rubbing around the bottom edge.

Fine, early 18th century, gold beetle and poker hands

CASE : Later gilt case, in good condition though with wear to most of the gilding on the outer surfaces. Some slight bruises to the back.

The hinge is fine and the bezel closes though the catch button is worn. The high dome crystal has a small chip on the lower edge.

Both dial and case are later than the movement, added probably during the last quarter of the 18th century.
