Beautiful little French gold cased verge, in a crystal set gold case with enamel portrait. All in very nice condition.

MOVEMENT : Good gilt verge movement, with nicely engraved and pierced balance cock. Fully signed (Adre. Falque a Sonquiere). All in perfect, almost mint, condition with the gilding still bright. Running well.

DIAL : White enamel dial, signed as the movement. Excellent condition with just a few small and very light scratches. Steel Breguet type hands.

CASE : Rose and yellow gold, with crystal set bezel and decoration around the enamel portrait and the front bezel. The inside is stamped with a maker's mark IC and serial number 6899.

The gold is in excellent condition except for a little wear to the catch button. The catch and hinges are fine and the bezel close correctly.

The crystal decoration is complete, though 5 of the tiny crystals on the front bezel are replacements.

The enamel portrait has a few light scratches but no restoration.
