Item:113847483996Stunning Elliott London Chinoiserie Japanned Grandmother Clock Musical. This stunning chinoiserie grandmother clock is made by the famous Elliott of London and is thus signed both “AN Elliott CLOCK” and “MADE IN ENGLAND” to the dial. The clock is also stamped to the back “L” and “5561”. The dial of the clock is set out in roman numerals upon a silvered chapter ring, this is then fitted to the silvered dial with brass, cherub spandrils to the corners and finished with two beautiful shaped fingers. The case is beautiful and extremely rare being as it is chinoiserie lacquered in a wonderful cream paint. Upon this cream paint is then beautiful raised chinoiserie scenes in a multitude of colours as well as a magnitude of gold highlighting. The clock is ticking away when wound however i do not have the pendulum for it. There is also a few other minor issues such as one chiming rod being missing (i have one present which is not photographed so only one missing) the glass to the hood door being missing, and a few knocks and marks commensurate with age. Due to this however the clock is SOLD AS SEEN for restoration although they are only minor issues. Very rare opportunity to buy such a wonderful and rare chinoiserie grandmother clock by such an esteemed maker. These clocks fetch in excess of £3000 when they come up for sale which is on rare occasion however i have listed at significantly less due to the issues and for a quick sale. It measures approximately: - 62” / 157.5cm Tall. - 10.5” / 27cm Wide. - 7” / 18cm Deep.
