Catalogue Note

Executed in the typical style, this charming watch for the Chinese market was likely produced in the mid 19th century.  It features, stylistically, a beautifully engraved movement, and, to the case back, an enamel.  The scene itself is composed of translucent blue upon an engine turned ground with a central, foliate cartouche containing two infants feeding a swan.
