Bennett Harvey, Watch & Clock Maker to his Majesty...

With an engraving of the Royal Coat of Arms and 'Dieu et Mon Droit' motto. 8 x 6.5 cm. 

In very good condition, the back plain but with remnants of stamp hinges having been mounted in an album at one time. A lovely and most unusual item of horological ephemera.
