A nice example of a 1920s drop dial clock with fusee timepiece movement.
The 12-inch dial is signed for the retailers, The Sussex Goldsmiths’ and Silversmiths’ Co., Brighton. It has been well repainted, with Roman numerals and subsidiary seconds indication, a nice feature not often seen on dial clocks of this era.
8-day timepiece fusee movement with maintaining power.
The oak case has a convex base with a locking base door, and a hinged side access door for access to the pendulum. The case has small rectangular ivorine plaques to either side signed for THE SUSSEX GOLDSMITHS’ AND SILVERSMITHS’ COMPANY, 13 PAVILION BUILDINGS, BRIGHTON. According to research published by Leeds University, they were at that address from c.1920-c.1932.
Latched cast brass bezel fitted with flt beveled glass.
Elegant matching steel spade hands.
