Vintage Elgin Hunter's Pocket Watch, 10kt G.F., early 1900's WORKS, 2" Long, Second Hand
Vintage Elgin's Hunter's Pocket Watch, 10kt G.F., with second hand. Works. It is 2" long from stem to bottom and 1.5" wide. I do not know the year for certain but it is early 1900's. The back does not open that I can figure out how to do it and I do not want to damage it by trying to pry or force it. The front opens easily and stays closed easily. There is a little wean on the crystal. I set the time and lightly wound it a few times to be sure it worked and kept time and it did. It has a little squared off open ring on the bottom at the hinge. The bail on the watch stem is solver tone so that may not be original. The gold is in really good condition - you do not see wear or base metal coming through. It tested as 10kt and I believe it is G.F. as the test area did eventually react to the acid. The back has a scrolled etched design with a victorian or very early 1900 look. This came from a northern PA estate. Good condition. See photos. (Lot. Loc. W.5.1918.2X4 - LD 6/30/18).
I carry mostly vintage jewelry across all themes in my stores and listings. I am currently stampshopgirl in Ebay and have been since I think 2003. I transitioned from rubber stamping to vintage jewelry about six years ago and also carry other vintage items and am trying to change my presence to marias vintage and estate treasures. You may see both names until the transition is complete. You can find me on pinterest where all my ebay items are categorized - mariasvinta0654.
I DO NOT STORE FINE METALS AND GEMSTONES ON PREMISES. PLEASE KEEP IN MIND THAT QUESTIONS MAY NOT BE ABLE TO BE ANSWERED IMMEDIATELY. THANK YOU.
Thank you for stopping by, mariasvintage.
Please note that most of my photos are taken at 10X magnification. This shows any blemishes much more magnified than they really are.
I keep great notes about each item and can answer most questions quickly, but I do not store fine jewelry on premises, so answers about specific measurements may take some time as I arrange to inspect the piece again.
In addition to this website, Maria's Vintage, I am on eBay as stampshopgirl, on Etsy as stampshopgirl, and on StorEnvy as Maria's. I have many vintage jewelry items and other vintage and new items - a very wide variety.
I will combine shipping, even if you buy items from one of my other stores. If you purchase one item and know you’ll be picking more, just email me and let me know and I will ship them at the same time and refund the shipping over the combined limit.
Given the number of different items I carry it is hard to know what combination of items can be purchased to pre-plan the shipping, so just email me and we will work it out to save you shipping charges whenever possible.
