This antique has been viewed 25 times in the past month with the most views from France.


This clock was quite possibly originally used in a Victorian factory or even part of a shop display.
It could be incorporated into an existing wall, hung on the wall, a bespoke wooden case could be made for it or simply sat on a table as a horological oddity and talking point.
The 8 day movement is of the highest quality with a single fusee chain driven barrel, an anchor escapement and four large plate pillars. The pendulum is of a cylindrical shape with a solid brass rod.
Currently presented in an unrestored but working state. Upon purchasing this clock the movement will be fully overhauled, serviced and guaranteed for 3 years. Delivery available via our fine art carrier anywhere in the UK.
A rare survivor from the Industrial Age
