English Georgian Style Mahogany Mantel Clock, Circa 1860
An attractive Victoria mantel clock with George III lantern topped mahogany case adorned with decorative brass sound frets to the sides and decorative brass highlights to the front columns and brass inserts to the top of the door. The top of the case surmounted by four brass balls to the corners and a brass carry handle. The base with a brass border and supported on four brass ogee feet.
The brass dial with swept floral spandrels and a silvered chapter ring. The matted gold centre with three winding holes, with a strike/silent dial to the top.
The substantial English brass movement with platform escapement sounds the quarters on a carillon of eight bells and the hours on a coiled gong.
The case has been polished. There is evidence of an old small repair to the mahogany veneer on the left hand side of the case which is visible in the photo images.
The movement has been fully serviced by our qualified Horologist.
This a very elegant clock of very pleasing proportions being only 14 inches tall (handle down) and presents in beautiful condition. The platform escapement makes for easy setup and movement as there is no requirement for a pendulum.
This clock would grace a period or modern decor.
