Back to Wall Clocks

This robustly made, late Victorian, English dial timepiece has a flat 12” diameter painted dial with Roman numerals, set behind a cast brass bezel with bevelled edge flat glass and a silvered sight ring, all mounted on a convex turned mahogany surround.

The 8-day chain fusee movement has plain rectangular plates, and the whole is mounted in a traditional “salt box” casing with a rounded bottom with a locking access door, and doors in each side to facilitate the fitting of the pendulum.  The wooden bezel measures 14½”  (370mm) at its outside diameter.
                 

Loomes in his book “Watchmakers & Clockmakers of the World (vol 2)” lists Harry Owen, Portsmouth, as known to be working there in 1878.

Price: £1250
