This is a completely original fine eight day fusee movement clock made by John Agar of the famous Northern clockmaking dynasty. This is an earlier example of his work with the Bury address on the dial, dating from circa 1871, and a rare item to find in this restored condition. The twelve inch dial is beautifully aged without being over-restored and the oak surround and back box are in great condition. There is an opening door to each side of the case and a turn-key latch lower door too. The hands have been replaced at some point and are nicely blued and the recently overhauled movement is a wire-driven beautiful example of mid Victorian elegance with chamfered shoulders to the top of the front and back plates, the plates being screwed together as befits a quality piece. If you look at auction prices for quality railwayana you'll see this clock is very well priced indeed and the clock comes with my two year guarantee as standard. A large number of railway clocks and pocket watches are attributed to John Agar (1853-1915) and his son. More provenance to follow on this clock.
Clockwise has clarified that the Eight Day Rare High Quality Lancs / Yorks Railway Clock (LA357965) is genuinely of the period declared with the date/period of manufacture being 1871
Rather than trusting a courier of any sort I unreservedly recommend collection or I can deliver regionally/nationally. All antique clocks require delicate handling and specific setting up so it is far better for a dealer to meet a client and talk them through the process, or set the clock up for them, rather than leave the client struggling at the other end on their own.
