In 1865 James Jones Elliott of 156 Cheapside in the City of London, was apprenticed to "Bateman" of 82 St John Street, Smithfield, London., to learn the art of clock making .It was not obvious at the time, but this was to be the origin of a company that would achieve a worldwide reputation as a manufacturer of the fine quality Elliott of London clock. JJ Elliott specialised initially in producing pinions and balance shafts, he progressed to making, and patenting, a weight driven movement which had chimes on tubes. This original Elliott clock was very successful and resulted in considerable trade with America. James Elliott's son, Frank Westcombe Elliott, was originally entering the retail trade as, when he was 17 years old, his father bought a partnership with a jeweller called Walden of Brompton Road, London. On the 16th April 1904, JJ Elliott died and Frank succeeded him to run the clockmaking business. In 1909 the clockmakers company of JJ Elliott amalgamated with Grimshaw Baxter, and the factory moved to Grays Inn Lane, London'.DIMENSIONS:The approximate MAXIMUM dimensions are:- 69.75 inches (177 cm) high- 12.75 inches (32.5 cm) wide across the hood.- 8.75 inches (22 cm) wide across the trunk.- 13 inches (33 cm) wide across the base.- 9 inches (23 cm) deep across hoodAs can be seen from the above dimensions this clock is of lovely slim and petite proportions.AGE:The clock is circa 1900.CONDITION:The clock is in wonderful condition as can be seen from the photographs.
