A fine early 19th century cased Marine Chronometer

A fine early 19th century cased Marine Chronometer the 3 3/4in. (9.5cm.) silvered Roman dial signed & numbered 'Walter Baker, London, 1275' with subsidiaries for state of wind and running seconds, in a gimballed bowl, with safety key, within a mahogany case with circular rebated ivory plaque numbered '1275' to the front and brass handles to the sides, paper label inside lid for 'Solomon Marks & Son, Chronometer Makers, Nautical Optician & Instrument Makers, 101, Rothsey Terrace, Bute Docks, Cardiff', within an outer mahogany case with oval ivory plaque for 'BARRAUD, Chronometer Manufacturer, No. 41, Cornhill, London', the inner with baize lining, chronometer box measuring 6 x 6in (15.3 x 15.3cm.), the outer box 9 1/2 x 9 1/2in. (24.2 x 24.2cm.). * Condition: The chronometer does run - it was fully wound when catalogued and is still running an hour later. One hand is detached (the detached hand may not be original to the piece). Complete with key. Dial has some horizontal lined rubbing to the silvering but is good overall and original. Inner case lacks escutcheon and has cracks to the around and to the right of the escutcheon recess - the wood here moves when gripped from the top of the box base by the lock - ideally requires gluing to secure. Shrinkage crack across the front of the case and another small crack to back right corner of lid. Numbered ivory plaque to front of lid has a fine hairline crack. Outer case has glued repair to base along the joint between the two pieces of mahogany, which have separated slightly. Green baize to interior has small hole to padded piece inside lid. Leather strap to secure lid is missing with only fragments remaining to either side. Ivory name plaque has a small crack to one end from the screw hole and some wear to black inked lettering. Case overall in original condition. Estimate £1,000-1,500Read more
