Gents pocket watch movement, Robert Roskell, Liverpool, no 3813, circa 1810.
Dial is missing. Key wound spring; rack lever escapement. Fusee and chain.
One of several watch movements donated by Ingram Brothers jewelers in 1937. During the 1930s Depression, customers would bring in gold or silver fob watches to sell for the value of the gold or silver. Ingrams (and other jewelers) melted down the cases to sell the metal, but kept the movements of historically interesting watches.
Donation from J. Ingram, 18/02/1937
Ornamental back plate is marked 'Rt. Roskell, Liverpool, 3813, Patent'.
