Stock No. P071


Small shagreen & gilt outer case

Price £250

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.
