You can Google Charles Louis Thiery and find out a lot of his patents. He was located in Massachussetts, primarily in Boston across from the Old South Church and had a number of patents for the manufacture of watch cases and the machinery. I assume the hallmarks are his company marks.

I have not seen this case & other unusual hallmarks in an American silver case - anyone know if this is an unusual case ? - only thing different looks to be dust cover with jurgenson type lip - didn't check patents yet.

Carol,

Welcome to our board.

I have a nickel alloy Thiery KW case that, for who knows what reason, the pendant has been removed from.

Greetings Watch Bob,
FYI. Information from the textbook ‘History of the American Watch Case’ by Warren H. Niebling

-- Thiery, Charles L., 1844 to 1848 in New York City, then 1848 to 1853 in Boston, then 1853 to 1858 in Cambridgeport and Boston Mass.
-- Thiery & Serex, 1858 to 1864 Cambridgeport, and Boston Mass.
-- Thiery Watch Case Co. 1876 to 1890’s Boston, Mass.

I have not seen that particular Thiery trademark before, having two Patent dates Nov 9, 1869 and Jan 18, 1870.
Charles L. Thiery made cases for early E. Howard & Co. Series I movements of the 1858 era (at Cambridgeport and Boston Mass).
Thiery and Serex also made cases for E. Howard & Co. Series I movements.

Best regards,
Jim M
