Item:292728772401Rare Georgian English Mahogany Bracket Clock CaseA very nice and hard to find mahogany Bracket clock case. This Georgian case is a rare survivor, as the movements tend to outlive the cases that they came in from this period. Thought to date from the 1790-1830 period and has quality mahogany veneers (see photos). This is delightful case would have originally housed an English double fusee bracket clock with five pillars (there is a hole where the fifth hole would have been located, locked into the case. The brasswork is excellent with a very nice handle on top and four bracket feet at its base. There is also brass edging to the front door, the lock however is missing but the escutcheon has been retained. The glass to the door is good and has ripples consistent with manufacturing of glass during this period. Both front and back door hinges are present and good, and the back door lock is still there but not its key. The seatboard is present and has some considerable age but may not be the original? As earlier mentioned there is another hole which would probably anchored the fifth pillar to the case? There are scratches/wear/damage as you would expect from case over 200 years old. If you could find somebody skilled enough to make a case like this today, it would cost a fortune. If you have a quality period striking bracket clock movement, then this is the ideal case for it, top quality! Measures just under 16in high with handle down, using a dial 7in wide x 9.5in approximately. Please see photos for condition. Would prove very useful for clock restorers and is sold as seen for parts/restoration with no returns.Postal costs refer to UK mainland addressesHappy to answer any questions, either via message or phone ( 07761 432112 ) Terms and ConditionsAll my items are sold for restoration and consequently sold as seen without a guarantee.
