An iconic Arts and Crafts hammered brass and copper striking mantel clock, dating from c.1910.
The bi-metallic case offers subtle colour distinction between the riveted copper seams and the hammered brass panels. Above the words DELAY NOT, TIMES FLIES, The front panel has an abstract beaten pattern which fades toward the dial above. The clock dial has Aesthetic-style Arabic numerals in relief, and with copper spade hands.
The 8-day clock movement strikes the hours and the passing of the half hour on a soft mellow gong. The movement bears the serial number 6592, matching the number on the pendulum.
There are many classic beautiful Arts & Crafts decorative items, and this clock sits among the best of them.
