Early nineteenth century Marine Chronometer
Marine chronometer No. 374 by Robert Roskell, (1798 -1830) Liverpool, England mounted on gimbals in a mahogany brass bound case.
Sotheby's London 4 April 2001 sold another marine chronometer by Robert Roskell No.1082 (lot 220) so if this was one of his last made around 1830 then it is a fair assumption that No. 374 was made around 1820 or before. The reason I bought and offer this marine chronometer for sale is that it appears to be in untouched original condition throughout and that is rare for a chronometer of this age today.
The box is a 7.8" (20 cm) cube.
