We offer for consideration, this fabulous 12” diameter fusee dial timepiece, by well-documented master clock and watchmaking brothers and jewellers Thomas and Edmund Rhodes of Kendal, Westmorland (now Cumbria). The clock is in excellent condition and good working order having been professionally serviced and fully restored to an exemplary high standard. The brothers successfully traded together as partners from c1865 to 1880 as “T & E Rhodes of Kendal”, based firstly at 26 Highgate, Kendal and later from 19 Highgate, Kendal. Thomas lived between 1829-1914, and the younger Edmund, between 1835-1915. From 1868-1873 the brothers were formally appointed by the Kendal Town Council to be “the orators and custodians of official time in Kendal” and in the process, they became not only respected local time-keeping aficionados, but also minor celebrities both in the town and larger Westmorland region. This clock’s lovely lathe turned solid red Mahogany roundhead styled face with crafted boxed cabinet, has nice patination, with hinged inspection doors located both to the side and its original and operable lockable door located at the bottom of the box. The clock retains its original metal dial with the artwork having been part of the professional restoration agenda, with black Roman numerals and the Rhodes brothers’ details, along with the clocks fusee serial number (8412), finished with its original pair of blued Spade hands, secured with a pinned collet. The clocks dial is then protected by a thick glaze mounted in its brass bezel, which has minor historical repair work. The clock benefits from an immaculate and fully functional 8-day single fusee chain driven movement, (the rectangular plates being stamped with the unique serial number 8412, as replicated on the dial), and comes with its original 80mm diameter brass pendulum bob. This is an English fusee dial clock of much substance by master clockmaking brothers with an enviable reputation for high quality. A rare opportunity to secure an immaculate early Victorian timepiece.
