A superb English Bracket Clock of the highest-quality workmanship, by world-famous clock and watch maker Rotherham and Sons of Coventry. (This clock was one of their “Ashow” models). The clocks hand-crafted Walnut case has lovely graining and aged patina, a bell top pagoda and a shaped brass carrying handle. The silvered chapter ring is mounted on a brass plate with black Roman numerals and additional fleur-de-lis and minute indicators. Inside the ring is a matted brass centre with a pair of blued steel Louis XVI style hands secured by a pinned collet. The dial is then surrounded by four brass maiden head spandrels and a silvered “Tempus Fugit” ("Time Flies") disc, with the presentation legend: “F.H.Bull, 25 Years.” The dial is protected by an arched glazed tablet, mounted in the case. Accessed by a hinged rear door, the exceptional circular 8-day lever movement is driven by a Rotherham’s 11-jewel screwed balance platform escapement with Chronovar hair spring (helping to ensure the escapement is impervious to temperature change and resistant to corrosion). The platform being signed “Made in England” and “R&S.” (Such was the accepted holistic quality and workmanship of Rotherham’s platform escapements that they were purchased by other high-end English clockmakers for use in their own branded clock movements). The Military style hand winding button and fixed rear winding key are screw mounted on the lacquered concentrically snailed brass backplate, which is stamped "Rotherham’s English Movement.” The plate also bears the serial no. “A04741”, providing conclusive evidence to when the clock was built, circa 1949/50. The movement is encased in its original factory issued Perspex dust cover. There is a general acknowledgement today, that between circa 1860 to 1960 the famous ‘Rotherham and Sons’ brand were at the cutting-edge of British clock and watch making excellence, one of the continual leaders in innovation and quality build. Therefore, it is reasonable and safe to surmise that their fabulous Ashow Bracket Clocks are out-and-out thoroughbreds in their class.
