M.I. Tobias 18s 15J 18K Gold
Item #0337
Here is a beautiful 18 size 15 jewel M.J. Tobias still in good running order. The picture shows the dial to be yellow but the entire dial is gold, and in very good condition. It has a detached lever gilt movement key wind and key set both from the back through the dust cover. The dust cover is signed "M.J. TOBIAS, LIVERPOOL, DETACHED LEVER, 15 JEWELS, HANDY, No. 12772". This should date this timepiece between 1820 and 1868. It is mounted in a triple hinged 18K Gold case that has engine turning on the back with a blank area for initials. The case shows some wear but you would too after 140 to 180 years. It takes a number 6 key to wind and set that is NOT included. You can pick one up from your local Jeweler. What a piece of history!!!
$895.00 (USD - includes standard U.S.P.S. first class shipping and insurance)
