Description
Clockwise is pleased to offer for your consideration this fine Georgian rosewood and brass inlaid extremely rare striking eight day fusee wall clock made by the Atkins clockmaking dynasty of London. The recently overhauled movement strikes on a lovely bell and is contained within a solid deep and 17 inch wide case with a decorative solid panel to one side and a decorative opening door to the other. With a lower and a rear door this revived case has plenty of access points and a lovely patina to it with stabilising hooks fitted to steady the clock for winding. The dial has been lovingly refurbished and is twelve inches in diameter with a lovely pair of original blued hands to finish off the striking appearance. Framed by the original brass bezel (which has a locking catch inside the case) and flat glass this handsome clock is an unusual and glorious find. In fact I am struggling to spot another striking version of this piece. Coming with my three year guarantee as standard this beautiful clock also provides peace of mind. Biography: Samuel Elliot Atkins was born in 1807 and was apprenticed to his Father from a young age. He became a member of the Worshipful Company of Clockmakers of the city of London in 1831 and was also elected member of the Court of Common Council for Cornhill, becoming Deputy of the ward in 1865. The family were prodigious clockmakers from the 1750's right up until 1918.

delivery

Rather than trusting a courier of any sort I prefer collection or I can deliver regionally/nationally. I do use Royal Mail as a courier and post nationally so this tracked and insured service is available, please enquire for a quote. All antique clocks require delicate handling and specific setting up so it is far better for a dealer to meet a client and talk them through the process, or set the clock up for them, rather than leave the client struggling at the other end on their own but this redoubtable clock will be straightforward to set up for you. I am always available for a video chat should there be any problems.
