Condition Report For Lot# 90:
good running order (winds, sets and ticks), the movement is in excellent condition with almost no oxidation and a few very fine scratches. The elaborately decorated, heavy high carat solid gold case is in excellent condition with great detail to the engraving and a dedication to "M. Gould 1844" on the inside of the solid gold cuvette. The dial is in good condition with some light scuffing. The bow and band are finely engraved and chased also. This is a piece of historical memorabilia capturing at the time an image of the US Capitol and its first dome before it was torn down and reconstructed in 1855.
Estimate: $2500 - $3500
