    Hi all,
    This is what I assume is an English fusee... but with an odd/unusual appearance. I've never seen one like this before... anyone with any information or ideas?
    Thanks,

    Hi Piers,

    This fusee lever is a sort of transition between full and three-quarter plate, a type which appeared from the 1820s. It would originally have had a rim cap, which together with the recessed balance made for a slimmer movement.

    Regards,

    Graham
