Description

Here we have for sale a good quality antique 14½" mahogany chiming railway station wall clock, with an Enfield mechanism, lovingly restored to its former glory and in good working order. This clock features a beautiful dark mahogany case, with a moulded mahogany 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.

This clock houses a quality double brass barrel spring driven Enfield chiming mechanism, which would have been shipped over to India and then cased locally, in order to reduce shipping costs, at the time.

The clock chimes once on the half hour and also every hour to the number of hours. The dial features two holes: The left-hand hole in the dial face is to wind up the clock movement and the right-hand hole is to wind up the chiming movement. This design gives you the option of either having the chiming mechanism enabled or disabled; allowing you to choose whether you want the chiming noise to be heard.

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, which is attached to the mechanism by accessing the clock from the door below, can be adjusted in length to allow you to regulate the clock speed. The clock comes with a key, which is used to wind the mechanism through the centre of the face dial.

This clock face features a replacement ivory colour tin dial with black Roman numerals and elegant shaped hour and minute hand. A hinged mahogany 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.

The mahogany case has been French polished to give a rich dark mahogany finish. 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.

Condition Report:
This 14-inch Enfield wall clock has been sympathetically restored and is now in good working order. Nominal old use marks to the case and original tin dial but nothing significant considering the age of the item. The mahogany case is in good condition. 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 tin dial has been replaced at some point in the past. The mechanism is original; it has been cleaned and serviced and is in good working order, keeping good time. As we are confident that you will have no problems with the mechanism, 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. We also offer a 14-day UK returns policy if you were not happy with it or wanted to return it for any reason. Please also note, this clock has the original mechanism; it has not been replaced with a cheaper devaluing electrical battery-operated kit that you see on some clocks.
