William Raven, Sheffield

Back to Bracket and Mantel Clocks

G.H. Baillie in his “Watchmakers and Clockmakers of the World”, lists the working dates of William Raven as 1817 – 40, but  the 1879 edition of “Whites Directory of Sheffield & Rotherham” shows a William Raven at 10 Waingate, Sheffield (possibly a son?).  This elegant bracket clock, in its mahogany chamfer top case,  would appear to date from around 1820 – 30.

The 18½” tall case exhibits all of the classic features of this case style  - namely  mahogany veneers; brass ball feet; inset brass-trimmed corner panels; canted corners; silk-lined brass fishscale side frets; pineapple finial (unusually in wood rather than cast brass); and cornucopia ring handles.

The 8” convex painted dial with Roman numerals and blued steel spade hands, is fitted to a good quality, 8-day, twin fusee movement striking the hours on a bell, and with optional pull repeat facility.

Price: £4250
