Description

A large 18-inch dial clock from Maple and Co., London, dating from the last quarter of the 19th century.
The very substantial chain fusee movement is of superior quality and has a rear-mounted counter-weight carried on a separate arbor, for the large hands. The timekeeping is excellent, currently testing within 15 seconds / week.
The polished oak case is in excellent condition, the back box with a rounded base and locking door. The cast-brass bezel also has a locking latch.
The bold white-painted Roman dial shows the signs of its ageing. The paint has had very minor restoration and stabilisation to keep the patina.
In 1841 John Maple founded a manufacturing and retailing business from the hub of the furniture centre in Londonís Tottenham Court Road. Through the founder and his sonís drive and excellence of the products of the company, expanded greatly, to have further workshops and points of sale in both Paris and Buenos Aires, and later, a shop in Smyrna.
Clients included Queen Victoria and members of the Royal Household, the King of Siam, and the Nicholas, Tsar of Russia.
Later, Maple would furnish the Royal yachts, the QE1 and the QE2.
Overhauled and guaranteed for 3 years.
