This 1860s drop dial case wall clock has a nice balance of finely executed wooden carvings, thus not looking overly fussy – note the small pointed base finials all still intact and complete, and the delicate ear-pieces. The veneers to the mahogany case are lively, especially on the glazed door frame. It has been well cared for over the years, giving us a completely original and beautifully presented clock.
The eight-day movement has shaped plates to the two train fusee movement and strikes the hours on a bell. The wood rod pendulum with a ringed cylindrical zinc bob is visible through the glass trunk door.
Original painted 12-inch white dial which has aged evenly, and is signed E. Johnson, Derby. Matching black steel intricate hands.
The movement is to be overhauled and guaranteed for 3 years.
