We present for consideration an exceptionally fine 12” diameter English drop dial fusee wall timepiece from c1845, by Francis Scholefield. Born in Dewsbury c1811, Scholefield served his apprenticeship in Bradford, before setting-up on his own at Market Place, Dewsbury, c1833. The clock is in excellent condition and good working order having been professionally serviced and fully restored to an exemplary high standard. The well-proportioned and exquisitely eye-catching flame Mahogany cabinet offers an impressive octogen-shaped head over a radiused finished drop box, incorporating a small visible pendulum glazed aperture. The cabinet’s inventory is beautifully simplistic, retaining its unique and finely hand-carved Acanthus shaped side-ears, and benefiting from three precisely fitted hinged inspection doors; one on each side of the case, the other positioned at the bottom of the drop box with its original and operable brass key locking mechanism. The original hand-painted metal dial is in superb condition for age, with black Roman numerals and the makers legend “Scholefield, Dewsbury.” The dial is then finished with its pair of original blued Stag Beetle style hands secured with a pinned collet and protected by an original 2-piece cast brass bezel that secures a thick glaze mount. The timepiece has a clean 8-day fusee movement set between shouldered plates separated by knopped pillars and comes with its original 38cm pendulum rod and brass bob, together with a brass winding key. A premium timepiece of much character, from one of Yorkshires master clockmakers!
