Description

• By Smith & Sons who were one of the most successful 19th Century makers of fine speciality clocks in London. Smith concentrated on making unusual clocks, exhibiting a number of their clocks, including a complicated year going calendar clock, at the 1851 Great Exhibition.
• The clock has a superb rosewood, ebony and brass inlaid Gothic revival case displaying, with beautiful Gothic trefoil arched clock face door, clustered columns topped by brass inlaid pinnacles. Case making doesn’t get any better than this.
• The mint silvered clock face has lovely chasing detailing with heart shaped hands.
• The super quality original movement has brass movement plates that perfectly match the case arch. Further signs of quality include a precision adjustable and locking pendulum. The movement is signed Smiths London.
• The clock is in pristine serviced condition and comes with a 12 month warranty (uk only).
• Note whilst the rear door is lockable, the front door (because of size constraints) was designed to have a miniature button push lock worked by pushing a small blank key through a small hole at the side - these bits of metal are notoriously flimsy and easily jam/break then making it almost impossible to open the door without damaging it. Accordingly, this small feature (with no visual impact) is omitted.
• Delivery £120 uk ex Scotland

Shipping
Other than a few smaller items that can be safely posted, nearly all items are hand delivered (and set up in the case of clocks) by Martin Bros who are one of Britain’s most prestigious carriers of antiques and fine art. I wish us avoid the hassle of cheap men and their vans! The standard (subsidised) delivery price shown is for mainland UK excluding Scotland. Please ask for a Quotation where the standard price is not applicable.
**************************************
Restoration and Presented Condition
I do not subscribe to the shabby chic or make it like new approach using modern materials which can make future restoration extremely difficult and impede long-term investment value.
Any restoration work is done to the highest (museum) standards using traditional materials so as to not compromise the patina of age.
Accordingly, please note some antique items for sale will have wear and marks associated with use over many generations that adds to the aesthetic beauty of the piece from the collector’s perspective.
