Samuel Thorp, Abberley verge fusee pocket watch with very unusual hunting case having elegantly pierced front lid. Silver case measures approximately 49mm diameter (pendant excluded) and bears London hallmarks for 1810 as well as a B. W marking in cameo for casemaker Benjamin Webb of Clerkenwell. Case appears to have been gilt at one time but now has lost nearly all gilt finish from its exterior, though much of the gilt finish to its interior remains. Case exterior has an attractive acquired patina which combines with the unusual pierced front to give this watch a striking in hand appearance. Dial is enamel with a winding aperture at the 3 O’clock position. Movement features a verge escapement and has a very attractive pierced and engraved balance cock. Movement serial number is 285. Fully wound and will tick briefly with a twist or will tick continuously if some reverse pressure is held at fusee, and I think likely this watch hasn’t been serviced in many years. Nice looking movement overall but with some scattered scratches and surface marks. Edge of main plate has one empty threaded hole for a screw adjacent the foot of the balance cock. Dial has a patched edge chip between 9 O’clock and 10 O’clock, some edge flaking around the 7:30 area, and some hairlines at several areas of perimeter with the most notable being around 7 O’clock. Case has an excellent in hand look with an attractive acquired patina. Case appears to have been at one time gold-plated but the exterior of case has virtually all of its gold-plating with the exception of some portions remaining to the neck of the pendant. Bow is brass with only some small bits of gold-plating remaining. Case front tilts back freely about 1/3 of the way toward closed with gravity. Domed glass crystal has some abrasions around center.
