PLEASE NOTE: I have just received some excellent quality bracket clocks from a private collection all of which have been well looked after all of which will be listed over the next few weeks. Some excellent quality bracket clocks please keep your eyes open over the next few months. Beautiful 18th century bell top design case with a stunning patina and finish to the solid mahogany. Original glass arched panels to the sides of the case.
A glazed hinged front door and glazed hinged door to back, unfortunately both locks are not in working order but both doors do hold shut when closed. A large bronze carry handle on top and 4 carved mahogany feet all in excellent condition. Case is in excellent condition for age and looks stunning on display with good patina & finish. The case has superb proportions which give a very impressive display look. Original painted arched dial with calendar dial to the centre.Roman numerals & fine steel hands. Dial is in great condition for age with only very minimal age wear.
The dial is signed by the maker William White of Afwarby. High quality English twin fusee wire driven 8 day bell striking movement with original verge escapement. Original fixed pendulum and comes with a new brass winding key. It strikes every hour counting the amount of hours. Movement is in full working order keeping good time for a verge as can be seen in the video above.
The clock has beautiful proportions and measures 23 inches high x 12.5 inches wide x 9 inches deep. This is a beautiful display piece from a large collection of bracket clocks. Looks absolutely fantastic wherever it is displayed and a true talking point of any room. Important Please Read: ALL antique clocks after transport no matter how well they have been looked after or serviced may require setting up, adjustments and setting into beat when you receive them and i always recommend a professional or an experienced clock person to do this correctly for you. Most clocks will be ok and will not need any additional adjustments but please bear in mind this may not be the case.For your piece of mind we test all our clocks here before they are sent out and any issues are either sorted or described in the add, the clock will not have any problems unless stated in the add as they are tested vigorously before sending. You are more than welcome to personally collect any item free of charge. All my items will be packed professionally.
No matter how well antique clocks have been serviced they will need final adjusting and setting into beat after transport and a professional person is advised and may be required in order to do this. All repairs needed to the mechanism will be carried out by myself and not by a 3rd party clock maker/repairer unless agreed by myself beforehand. Please contact me for a quote if you have another movement that requires servicing. I will be mostly dealing in top quality original antique clocks all of which we have full confidence in and which we source from good collectors worldwide.
