A substantial 24 inch wall clock dating from c.1860 by Evans, Handsworth.
The honey-coloured oak case has a moulded dial surround, the back box having a locking curved base door, and two hinged and latched side access doors.
The 18-inch dial is in excellent original condition. It is signed EVANS & SONS / SOHO CLOCKS FACTORY / HANDSWORTH. The digits are bold and squared, as are the black painted hands, the minute hand being counterbalanced.
The single fusee timepiece movement has tapered shaped plates. It is photographed in its unserviced condition, but is to be sold overhauled and guaranteed for 3 years.
The side-hinged cast brass bezel is blackened, and latches shut.
