    watch ID #2 - Enameled silver watch

    This one has a nice enameled face, is small, and appears to be silver. Any sense of age or origin? 1.54" across

    Beautiful dial! It is a sliver case but appears not to be English as none of the hallmarks are English. Middle part of the 19th century I suspect. Maybe a European export to America?

    Others will chip in too, I'm sure.

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!

    Mid-late 19th century. Might have British hallmarks but I can't see them clearly. Could you take another photo of the case hallmarks in more detail. Thanks.
