Charles Sansom of London is recorded working in London for the known dates of 1863-1881, this clock would likely pre-date that at around 1840-50. This is not uncommon as recorded dates were compiled from available records of the period. The clock is typical London high quality throughout with substantial fusee movement and very well crafted case with brass inlays into well figured Mahogany and attractive convex dial, original hands and lower convex door with lock and key. The dial is 12" diameter and has bold Roman numerals. The rear of the dial is very interesting as it shows the makers name Sansom and many historical repairs at varying dates but importantly it shows old script at the time of the clocks creation which we have photographed (see attached images).... "Ordinary figs, No name, Sansom". We have never seen this before on the rear of a dial!
The glass over the dial is of course convex and the bezel is thick cast brass. The dial has the odd mark here and there but is original and we feel it best left as is but can be discussed .
A wonderful and elegant clock/timepiece.
