A wonderful brass face, floral spandrels, roman numerals, engraved name play and date aperture. A true Antique, made to wonderful portions. It would stand extremely proud in any room.
We don’t believe in the usual huge mark ups. We hand-pick every piece of antique furniture and pride ourselves on our low prices. Quality you can trust for far less!
The wood has a wonderful patina and rich glow, created over the last 190 years. A stunning piece of British history that was an essential in every wealthy household. Worth buying even just as an investment or store of wealth.
The clock has the more valuable and sort after 8 day movement requiring winding just once per week rather than every day.
Our clocks are half the price of antique & clock shops. Each one is overhauled by a leading specialist in the midlands with over 60 years experience which would usually cost £500 upwards, alone. This clock is in excellent working order and keeps excellent time. The movement and workings are nearly 200 years old, yet look almost new after being overhauled.
****The movement is currently being overhauled and due to be completed in around 3 / 4 weeks.
