A beautifully proportioned English striking Mantle Clock from the Enfield Clock Company (London) Ltd. (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 striking mantle clocks using their own F2 and later F3 movements, from their factory in Enfield, London). The movement in this fabulous clock has the robust and quality Enfield 8-day F2 mechanical pendulum movement which helps to date the clock. (It was introduced by Enfield in c1938, the template of which was subsequently used by Smiths for many years afterwards, due to the movements beautifully engineered and exceptional reliability). With its plain finished and lacquered brass backplate simply signed “Made in England”, the clock strikes the hours and half-hours and comes with both its original Smiths-Enfield 115g, P7 pendulum bob and brick wall patterned gong block and coiled gong. The clock has an exquisitely shaped light Mahogany case, with beautiful graining and a deeply polished patina, a case that would surely delight any connoisseur of outstanding minimalistic beauty. The clocks clean and silvered “Enfield” signed dial has black Arabic numerals, finished with a pair of black Heavy Double Swell spade hands, secured by a pinned collect and protected by a clean convex glazed front supported by a chrome bezel. This is a truly elegant premier clock of high-quality, by one of England finest early 20th Century clock makers.
