Description
A good late 19th century Ormolu and painted porcelain panelled Mantel Clock by makers Wassell and Halford of 43 Fenchurch Street, London. The heavy gilt brass base supports hand-painted porcelain panels on three sides (two of which are curved) and the painted dail. The subject for the painting framed in turquoise is a mixture of Cherubs, flowers, sheet music and musical instruments. There are two pineapple finials to the top, either side of a raised urn shaped two-handled topper (also painted, with flowers and a bird). The 8-day movement strikes hours and half hours on a bell. The dial is exquisitely hand-painted with roman numerals, gold painted scrolls and gilt edging. There are gold-painted 5-minute and minute markers around the chapter ring and it retains its original spade hands. It is signed below the XII ‘Wassell and Halford’. The address also appears, between the winding posts in the centre of the dial, above the VI. Complete with key. Dimensions: Height: 14 inches (36 cm) Width: 10inches (25.5 cm) Depth: 6 inches (15.2 cm)
