Description

An unusual and high quality Lancet top bracket clock by these well known Scottish clockmakers.
The high quality 8 day duration double fusee movement strikes the hours on a bell and is signed to the painted dial Mitchell & Russell, Glasgow. The movement features 5 plate pillars, anchor escapement and strike/silent facility above number XII. The painted round dial has matching blued steel hands. The Lancet top case is veneered with superb flame mahogany to the front elevation and profusely inlaid with ebony throughout. Both sides feature lion head handles and brass silk lined sound frets of a gothic design. The bespoke made mahogany veneered wall bracket is complete with an access door to regulate the long pendulum.
Price: 6,250 / Height: 27" / C.1825
Note: Mitchell & Russell were working during the first half of the 19th century. Based on this particular clock and previous purchases it appear they used a very fine cabinet maker based somewhere in Glasgow. They were also a manufacturer of Church & Tower Clocks. Due to the longer pendulum this clock has always been on a wall bracket. We made the decision to reinstate the lost bracket using the cabinet work of the clock as a guide.
