Vaucher Pearl and Enamel Repeater
Fine French 18K gold, pearl and enamel 44 mm dumb quarter repeater antique pocket watch
by Vaucher, Paris, circa 1790.
The bezels set with large pearls, the back with a foil design of a bird in a fountain
within a floral border on blue enamel over an engine turned background.
Replaced enamel dial (contempory with the watch) with repairs at the edge and winding hole.
Verge and fusee movement with large pierced and engraved balance cock. Lovely.
When the pendant is depressed this watch chimes the hours and quarters
on the case in a discreet manner so as to not disturb others.
Diameter 44 mm
|| Very Good
NOTE: The small circles or shadows in some of our photos
are reflections of the camera lens. Since this watch is much smaller than in the
enlarged photos, a tiny blemish or imperfection that you could not see when looking
at the actual watch can appear very large in the photos.
