Description: English timepiece dial clocks are fairly commonplace, although finding good examples is getting more challenging however, striking dial clocks are quite difficult to find, especially as most are quite ungainly and not particularly attractive. So I was very pleased when I came across this particularly handsome Edwardian example. The case is a full drum style case and the sides are as attractively figured on the sides as they are on the front. The case is well proportioned and finely executed, indicative of the fine and exacting cabinet making that the Edwardian craftsmen were renowned for. The bezel is heavy cast brass with an integral silvered sight-ring. The dial is well defined with its original ground and the name and chapters just retouched. The hands are the traditional blued steel spade design that are attractive and clear to read. The twin fuse movement is of great quality and in very good condition. We have fully dismantled and serviced it but, in truth, it really needed little work. It has a very attractive bell which strikes on each hour. 12" Diameter Dial 14" (36 cm.) Overall Diameter
