London, Twin-Fusee, Bell Striking Wall Clock
A rare twin-fusee wall clock, striking on a bell. Very seldom do these clocks come along. Made by UPJOHN & BRIGHT, 13, King William St., STRAND. They are recorded in Brian Loomes "Clock Makers of the World" as working here between 1823-1861. The fine mahogany case benefits from having the very desirable narrow profile with side doors and key operated door to the underside. A cast brass bezel enclosing the 12" white painted dial with black Roman numerals, nicely cut hands, and signed as above. The twin, chain driven, fusee movement has just been fully overhauled by our BHI registered staff and carries our usual 12mths full parts and labour guarantee. The clock strikes the hours on a bell and has a clear, crisp tone. An outstanding, quality clock. All cards accepted.
Masons Antiques has clarified that the London, Twin-Fusee, Bell Striking Wall Clock (LA343305) is genuinely of the period declared with the date/period of manufacture being C1850
