18 size sunk-seconds enamel pocket watch dial private label signed Wm. A rare and interesting private label dial, the firm of Wm. Kendrick's Sons was located in Louisville, Kentucky and were authorized sales agents in the late 1890s for Ball Watch Co.
This dial notably has an appearance very similar to the typical Ball Watch Co. Dial of this era, but from the few examples I've seen this particular dial with Wm. Kendrick's Sons" signature was originally paired with Grade 936 Hamilton movements that were private label marked "Wm. Kendrick's Sons, Superior Railway.This is the first loose example of this dial I recall having seen offered, so if anyone happens to have one of these movements in need of a dial this is a very rare opportunity. Nice looking dial overall but has a patched edge chip outside the 6 minute area and a patched edge chip outside the 11 minute area, if the dial were used with a watch both of these edge flaws will likely be mostly covered by the case bezel so the in-hand appearance should be excellent when cased.
