4. 17th century watch
A mid-17th century watch given as a confirmation present is valued at £18,000-22,000 in the Charterhouse auction in Sherborne, Dorset, on March 11-12.
It was found in a sock drawer in a remote Dorset cottage. Contained in a little cardboard box with a pencil inscription Lorna’s watch-clock Confirmation Present from me, it is thought by the family to have been a present from her parents some 80 years ago or so.
The cruciform watch, made from brass in a rock crystal case and decorated with enamel, measures just 3in (8cm) high. The dial has a chapter ring with Roman numerals which is centred by the birth of Jesus above a vignette of Adam and Eve. The back plate, engraved scrolling foliage, is signed Drovino A Potiers.
Charterhouse says that generally it has survived the past 380 years in good condition, although it has lost its hand and the case is chipped.
