Description
We present for consideration, this excellent 12’ dial fusee wall timepiece by Herbert Anstoe Barrs of Reading, Berkshire. Born April 1858 in Tockington, Gloucestershire, Barrs (having passed his apprenticeship) commenced his watch and clockmaking profession in Bath, Somerset, when in his early 20’s. He resided with his widowed mother Eliza, in the affluent Queen Square, Bath. However, by 1889, Barrs had left Bath and relocated to Reading, trading from 12 Cross Street (from where this clock would have been made), whilst residing at West Street, Reading. He carried on trading from Cross Street, until at least 1911 when he was recorded on the Census records for that year, aged 53, (by which time, Barrs was mainly concentrating on the production of pocket watches). The clocks turned oak roundhead face and boxed cabinet has a hinged inspection door located on the side of the box and an operable lockable regulator door located at the bottom of the box. The clocks original metal dial (stamped on the back with serial number “4195”), has black Roman numerals with Barrs’ details, finished with its original pair of blued Spade hands, secured with a pinned collet. The clocks dial is then protected by glaze mounted in a brass bezel. The clock benefits from a quality 8-day single chain driven fusee movement set between rectangular plates and turned pillars and comes with its original 70mm diameter brass pendulum bob and a brass winding key.
