A French lacquered brass miniature carriage timepiece Retailed by J. W. Benson, London, late 19th century The eight-day single train movement with replaced platform lever escapement and rectangular white enamel Roman numeral dial inscribed J. W. BENSON, LONDON to lower margin and with blued steel spade hands, the five-glass bevel glazed case with hinged carrying handle over complex top mouldings and channelled canted angles, on conforming ogee-profile base incorporating small squab feet, 8cm (3ins) high excluding handle. The firm of James William Benson was created when a partnership between brothers James William and Samuel Stuckley Benson was dissolved in 1855. James William Benson was succeeded by his two sons, Arthur and Alfred after his death in 1878. Their business expanded and traded from several addresses in London including 25 Old Bond Street (1872-3), 28 Royal Exchange (1892-1937) and Ludgate Hill (1854-1937 with their clock and watchmaking workshops located behind at 4-5 Horseshoe Court). The firm became a Limited Company in 1892 and continued trading until bought, presumably by Garrards, in 1973. Condition report disclaimer
