An early drop dial clock in an uncomplicated mahogany case – the well-proportioned case features a narrow dial surround, simple shaped earpieces, and a curved foot with a locking pendulum door, which retains its original brass escutcheon.
The locking cast brass bezel is concave in section, and is fitted with plastered-in domed glass.
The bezel combined with the narrow dial surround are characteristic of the earlier dial clocks – dial surrounds became wider through the Victorian period, and bezels became narrower and convex.
8-day fusee movement with shaped drop-shoulder plates, anchor escapement, the long pendulum with a bulbous brass bob.
The restored convex iron 11-inch dial is signed for Richard Fairey, London.
