Stock No. P071


Small shagreen & gilt outer case

Price £250

Diameter 42.5 mm, inner bezel diameter 37 mm, inner depth to bezel 13 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.
