Seller: randall977 (2,017) 100%, Location: Wantage, Ships to: Free Local Pickup, Item: 202804166723 This is an extremely rare and superbly built Gillett and Johnston (Croydon) bracket clock with solid mahogany and inlayed case. It has a patented temperature compensating pendulum and ingenious two train quarter chiming twin fusee movement. One feature which makes it very rare is that it's a twin fusee which chimes both Whittington or Westminster on 9 gongs (plus chimes the hour). The other is the enamel face which has Gillett and Johnston on it - the maker rather than the retailer. The mahogany case is heavy and substantial at H43 x W28 x D21cm, the rear door is glazed. The case is original and good condition. It comes with G&J winding key and original hands which are often broken and lost due to their delicate design. The movement has been fully cleaned and serviced, it works very reliably. Gillett and Johnston produce the best quality clocks for the wealthy and made both the movement and cases in their Croydon factory (after 1923 they became FW Elliott). Collection only from Wantage near Oxford due to size and to avoid damage. Delivery could be arranged depending on where to - check beforehand if this is the case. Age: Antique, Post-1900, Material: Mahogany, Clock Type: Fusee Clock, Style/ Origin/ Theme: Edwardian, Type: Bracket Clock, Features: Whittington
