A WEDGWOOD BLUE AND WHITE JASPERWARE AND STEEL-CUT CHATELAINE CIRCA 1800
the watch case with a dark-blue jasper back with white classical figures in low-relief, the enamel watch dial signed Philippe Terrot, with three chains of cut-steel, cut glass and jasper beads, with a small oval dark-blue jasper plaque, impressed WEDGWOOD, the lower section with various attachments, including clusters of glass beads, two keys and a seal.

The piece is in good appearance. There is glue residue from mounting to the glass case front of the watch. There is a restored flat chip to the horse on the oval medallion. It is possible some elements of the chatelaine are later additions. The watch movement is guaranteed.
