Description
We present for consideration, this exceptional fusee wall clock with 12” dial, by maker Victor Kemp of Rotherfield, located on the county borders of Sussex and Kent. Born 1856 in Groombridge, Kent, Kemp spent most of his early clockmaking years working successfully out of this idyllic rural location. However, from c1883 Kemp had moved his operations to near-by Rotherfield in Sussex, working from High Street in the parish towns’ centre, where this clock would have been made. From 1895, records indicate that he was once again back at Groombridge, working from Station Road, and at some later stage still, must have moved to Tunbridge Wells, the main market town in the area, where he passed away in the summer of 1935 aged 80 years old. The clocks turned Mahogany roundhead face and boxed cabinet has good, aged patination, with two hinged inspection doors located on each side of the box and an operable lockable regulator door located at the bottom of the box. The clocks original metal dial has black painted Roman numerals with Kemps details, finished with its pair of blued Spade hands, secured with a pinned collet. The clocks dial is then protected by glaze mounted in its lockable cast brass bezel incorporating a canted silvered brass fillet to the interior. The clock benefits from a fabulous high quality 8-day single fusee chain driven movement set between 4mm thick rectangular plates and turned pillars and comes with its original 75mm diameter pendulum bob and a fusee brass winding key. A lovely, handcrafted timepiece from a noted and documented clockmaker within England’s South-Eastern counties.
