Silver plated pocket watch manufactured by R.T. Roskell of London, with a hunting scene engraved on the front and a sailing scene on the back. The barrel bridge over the interior mechanism depicts a unique scene of two dogs underneath a tree. The watch is no longer mechanically functional. Well-worn engraving on the back reads “presented to Capt. J.F. Snyder Comp E 110th Regt. January 25, 1862. Cumberland Maryland.” John F. Snyder enlisted in the 110th Pennsylvania in September 1861 and resigned his commission in June 1862. He would have seen action with his regiment at Kernstown and Port Republic in the Shenandoah Valley. An attractive Civil War soldier’s pocket watch worthy of restoration.
