    Description

    General JEB Stuart's Key-Wind Gold Pocket Watch A hinged, triple case, 52mm pocket watch, serial number 34474, inscribed with his initials within a shield "JEBS" surrounded by the belted buckle device, a badge common to people with Scottish heritage such as the Stuart family. With its original gold-filled chain bearing an eagle-head terminal and fob, this watch was most certainly with him when he died. Stuart's dashing cavalier style of dress uniform was completed with this beautiful gold watch. The case is crafted by E. Maurice and Company of Paris and the movement by John Cragg of London and has a white porcelain face with Roman numerals and an inset second hand. The etched front of the case gives the watch an interesting cross, moiré look. The case is in very good condition with minor dents and a small chip on the dial at the four o'clock position. The watch is not currently in running condition and is missing the key.

    Provenance: Stuart Family correspondence and Bill of Sale.
