Description

Here we have for sale a good quality antique 15" mahogany Smiths Enfield, timepiece wall clock, circa 1930, originally sold by the Anglo-Indian retailer “Limton”, which has been lovingly restored to its former glory and is now in good working order.

The clock houses a top-quality single brass barrel spring driven English Smiths Enfield timepiece movement (not fusee), which would have been shipped over to India and then cased locally, in order to reduce shipping costs, at the time. The clock was originally sold by the retailer “Limpton” who were established in 1901 and based in Calcutta, where they had a watch showroom, selling premium & branded wrist watches. There is a stamped label on the mahogany case (below the 6pm position) denoting that it had been serviced by the Anglo-Swiss & Watch company, Calcutta.

A timepiece mechanism is not designed to chime or strike. The movement has been restored and serviced and is now in good mechanical order, ensuring this clock is reliable and keeps good time. The pendulum length, which is attached to the mechanism by accessing the clock from the door below, can be adjusted to allow you to regulate the speed of the clock. The clock comes with a key, which is used to wind the mechanism through the centre of the face dial.

This clock features a beautiful mahogany case, with a moulded brass bezel, a pendulum access door on the underside and a mechanism-viewing door on the left-hand side that allows you to view the mechanism whilst in operation. The mahogany case has been French polished to revive the wonderful colour and patination of the grain in the timber. This clock features a “deep dish” case design which means that case is of better quality and is slightly deeper in depth than the 16” clocks. On the back of the clock is a bracket to attach the clock to the wall.

This clock retains its original tin dial with black Arabic numerals and elegant shaped hour and minute hand. A hinged solid brass bezel houses the glass face that protects the tin dial and face whilst in operation. The brass bezel opens on a right-hand hinge to allow you to adjust or set the time. There is a catch to the back of the clock that locks the brass bezel in place and stops it from accidentally swinging open.

Condition Report:
Nominal old use marks to the case and tin dial but nothing significant considering the age of the item. The mahogany case is in good condition having been French polished by hand in our workshop. The tin dial is original with old use marks and wear present to the face. There is a stamped label on the case (below the 6pm position) denoting that it had been serviced by the Anglo-Swiss & Watch company, Calcutta. The brass-hinged bezel is in good working order, with some play to the hinge. The bezel-locking latch is present and working and prevents the bezel from opening. The spring mechanism is original (not fusee); it has been cleaned and serviced and is in good working order, keeping good time. We offer a 2-year UK warranty whereby if there were a mechanical problem with the clock, we would collect it free of charge from you, have it repaired and returned free of charge to you.
