Description
Clocks of this type are not found too often, most especially ones of this quality. It is in beautiful original condition, quite clearly looked after and cared for from new. Dating from the William Iv period, it was made by Russell of Liverpool. He is recorded as working in Slater St. and then Church St, Liverpool, becoming Russell Ltd. (Clockmakers to the Queen) in 1906. Liverpool clocks from this period are regarded as amongst the finest made, and this one is testament to that belief. The case is constructed from the very finest quality mahogany, retaining it's original French-polished finish and with a beautiful, deep, rich patina. It has both side and bottom opening doors and a glass ventricle through which the brass pendulum can be seen working. There are grapevine "ears" to the lower half. It has a brass bevel and silvered sight ring. The 12" white painted dial has black Roman numerals and beautifully cut hands. The 8 day, twin fusee movement strikes the hours on a bell with a lovely crisp clear tone. It has just been fully serviced by our Bhi registered staff and carries our usual 12mths full parts and labour guarantee. It is complete with it's original winding key. (another good sign that a clock has always been looked after). Simply out and out quality throughout. All cards accepted.
