    a rough guess would be 1760-1830 judging by the balance cock used on the watch

    Thanks very much.
    Which bit is the balance cock?
    Is there any way of dating it more precisely or finding out who made it?

    I guess that will be basically impossible.
    It is a cool box.
    I imagine a Coke user and WIS would love a such beautiful piece! ( as extremely few people use snuff these days!)
