Small 18thc. Shagreen Outer Case
Stock No. P071
Small shagreen & gilt outer case
Diameter 42.5 mm, inner bezel diameter 37 mm, inner depth to bezel 8 mm.
Gilt brass base, with shagreen covering and gilt rims and pins.
Good unrestored condition. The shagreen is almost perfect, with no cracks or pieces missing and only a small chip at the neck of the bezel and a few rubs. Good colour. Just three pins missing from the back and three from the bezel.
The hinge, catch button and catch are fine and the case snaps shut nicely.
