    20k gold Pair case Repousse verge pocket watch Brown London 1725. Outstanding pair-cased Dutch rococo Verge fusee pocket watch in exquisite repoussé gold case of French origin circa 1725-30, “Minerva shielding Telemachus from the Arrow of Cupid”. The watch bears the signature “Brown London” , in my opinion; these are a falsifying statement. In the 18th century, English clocks were the most popular of their time. For this reason it was common among European watchmakers to provide their watches with an English signature. Upon closer inspection of the watch you may come to the conclusion it can only be the work of a Dutch master. Compering with Watches by Paul Bramer or Cornelius Uyterweer, then show the typical, charming playful movement pillars, the two-sided screwing of the escapement bridge. Another feature is the typical Dutch dial and the curving minute hand. The richly decorated pair cases with large external hinge are made of 20k gold. Due to its excellent, outstanding quality may be the work of one the greatest masters of the time. Made in repoussé technique, the outer case is a lush, mythological scene. Minerva protecting the sleeping Telemachus against the love arrows of Cupid. The smooth inner case is also made of 20kt gold and shows four hallmarks of the master goldsmith. In addition to the French master brand L R under a crown, the French lily, the city of Lyon Brand (Flower) and the Lion brand that stands for the purity of the gold of 840/1000. Both cases are found in nearly unworn condition , the textile between the two cases are still the original intermediate sheet of silk. Very well-preserved dial , enamelled, with Roman and Arabic hour minute. Original Poker & Beetle iron hands. The enamel dial has radial Roman hours and Arabic minutes. The dial is very well preserved. Full plate movemen t, keywind, applied floral decorations, firegilt, signed, chain/fusee, fluted pillars with foliate scrolls, three-arm brass balance, engraved and pierced silver balance bridge with flower and shell decoration.
