Description
We present for consideration, this superb fusee wall timepiece with scarce 10” dial in excellent working condition, by maker Edward White of London. Born into a wealthy Dublin family in 1830, White relocated to London to fulfil a horological apprenticeship at the world-famous firm of ‘Dent & Co.’, and by 1861 was running his own clock, watchmaking and goldsmiths’ business from 20 Cockspur Street, in the affluent retail area of Westminster in the City of London. Such was his exceedingly high standard of work and craftmanship (no doubt due in part to his world-class training at Dents), he was awarded a number of high-profile international prize medals and commendations at various clock and watchmaking exhibitions in London, Paris and Dublin, between the 1860-70’s. We also know, that although he moved London residence on a number of occasions, his trading outlet always remained at Cockspur Street throughout his life. (This can be witnessed in his Will of 12 Jan 1877, when he gave his residence as ‘15 Alban Terrace, The Grove, Hammersmith, London’ and that his business premises as 20 Cockspur Street). White passed away on 25 Apr 1884 (just 54 years old), at 2 The Cedars, Fulham, Middlesex. However, it is known that his ‘E. White’ business name carried on after his death, given that local directories up to the year 1939 (and the commencement of Wwii), still list this name under retail jewellers. The clocks solid Oak lathe turned roundhead face, sits over its boxed cabinet, with a hinged inspection door located on one side of the box and an operable lockable hinged regulator door located at the bottom of the box. The clock retains its original metal dial, painted with black Roman numerals and White’s details, finished with its original pair of blued Heavy Double Swell spade hands, secured with a pinned collet. The clocks dial is then protected by a thick glaze mounted in a solid brass bezel. The clock benefits from a quality 8-day single fusee chain driven movement set between rectangular plates and turned pillars and comes with its original 75mm diameter brass pendulum bob and a steel winding key. …A fabulous mid-Victorian 10” fusee dial timepiece of exemplary quality, from a highly trained and international award-winning clockmaker!
