Superb Drop-dial Wall Clock. Withington Of Taunton

Status: This item has been sold
Sold by: Masons Antiques

Description

A really lovely example of these ever popular wall clocks by WITHINGTON of TAUNTON. He is recorded in Loomes "Clockmakers of the World" as working in Taunton between 1875-83.
A stunning mahogany case with a much sought after narrow surround to the dial elevating the elegance of the clock. It has a wonderful, rich patina, contrasted by the brass inlay and brass surround of the glass lenticle to the lower half of the case. The pendulum can be seen working through this glazed aperture. There is a key lockable drop down door to the underside and also an opening inspection door to the side
The 12" white painted dial has black Roman numerals, is signed by the maker, and has a cast brass bezel.
The 8 day fusee movement has just been fully overhauled by our BHI registered staff and carries our usual 12mths full parts and labour guarantee.
Regrettably we are not as good at photography as we are at clocks and so our pictures do not portray the real beauty of this clock. It is a stunner.
