Lot 4256Pocket watch: excellent erhaltenene and very fine Gold/enamel pocket watch for Chinese market, Ilbery London No. 2720, about 1840/50
Approx. Ø54mm, approx. 101g, 18K Gold, on both sides, magnificent enamel-work, back side of ladies portrait, Background, wavy, red Guilloche enamel, fantastic quality, motion painting, both edges floral engraved and enamelled, is also of the same dark red surface on the housing inner edge punches various Gold, glazed dust cover, jump cover, exceptionally beautiful, signed and numbered fire-gilt work in a special factory quality, with screwed Chatons and Diamond endstone, very rare ruby duplex escapement, key winding, perfectly preserved enamel dial and original hands, center second hand, excellent condition, fully functional. The clock shows all the characteristics of a late Ilbery, i.e. a construction period of 1840-1850. 1. 2000s number system, which probably began only after his death, because all Ilbery watches with 2000s numbers are scenes from the period 1840-1850, with slightly smaller Enclosures, half round Pendant and predominantly floral motifs, instead of the usual Figure. 2. The "modern", high-precise execution with screwed Chatons and Diamond endstone, so far only found in Ilbery watches of the time documented 1840-1850, extremely rare, in Ilbery No. 2185. 3. For the Chinese market, the typical and popular design of the women's portraits, which was used until about 1840, and until then, the sought-after scenes of antiquity and of the typical landscape painting replaced. Also the original pointer is found only in later Ilbery from the period after 1830, for example, the number is 2741, sold in Geneva in 2011 (source: https://www.cortrie.de/go/O0j).
