During the pandemic post-lockdown period, we have been busy in the workshops renovating, servicing and cleaning some of our considerable stock of quality vintage timepieces. As such, we now present for sale this Lovely English Bakelite striking Mantle Clock produced by the Enfield Clock Company (London) Ltd, one of England’s most respected and collectable early 20th Century clock makers. (In 1933 Enfield was purchased by the much larger Smiths English Clocks Ltd and immediately became known as “Smiths-Enfield”, although up until early 1950, Enfield continued to manufacture clocks such as this one, under their own name at their Enfield, London factory; this, with the added benefit of being able to incorporate into their production lines some of the new designs and technologies being introduced by Smiths). The clock has the robust, quality Enfield 8-day F3 mechanical pendulum movement as its engine, with a brass line-dotted backplate signed “Enfield. Made in England”, which helps date the clock to the late 1940’s. The clock strikes the hours and half-hours and comes with its original Smiths-Enfield 115g P7 pendulum bob and its brick wall patterned gong block with coiled gong, both used until the late 1940’s. The clocks’ chocolate coloured Bakelite case is in the classic yet simple ‘drumhead’ shape and being Bakelite, an early thermosetting plastic, meant that once the case was formed, it would not change shape or melt when exposed to direct sunlight or other forms of ambient heat. The Enfield signed dial is silver coloured and finished with black Arabic numerals and black Heavy Double Swell Spade hands, secured with a pinned collet. These are all protected by a clean chrome bezel that supports a convex glazed front. This is a high-quality, English made Bakelite clock, in good condition for its age and very collectable...
