Sterling silver consular case, HM London, 1848. Casemakers Josiah Barnett & William Waters. Pendant maker James Overan. The case with two gold hinges and the dial were probably produced specially for this movement in 1848; the original case was most likely replaced because it was damaged or with the intention to "modernize" the piece.
