Seller: boilyhead (1,287) 100%, Location: wilts, Ships to: Americas, Europe, Asia, AU, Item: 233360883465 Here for auction with no reserve is an 18c triple fusee bracket clock c1780. The fine quality 8 day 5 pillar movement was originally a verge escapement but like so many have been later converted to anchor for more accurate timekeeping possibly during the Victorian period. Beautiful engraved back plate and playing on a peel of 8 bells on the quarter hours and striking the full hours on a single bell[9 in total]. In excellent working order with a lovely mellow tone to the bells. The movement is in nice clean condition and all three trains have had new cable to replace the old worn cat gut and are much stronger and longer lasting. The top sub dial is for strike silent so you can switch of the bells at night and still have the clock running. Like many of these old clocks there have been a few alterations I.E. the front door lock is missing and been filled in and a hook and eye fitted but quite easy to fit a lock back in should you wish. The solid brass finials are later replacements but look in keeping and have some age to them. The clock is in good working order and strikes all the quarters and the hours as it should. The ebonized case is in very good order with some marks and wear consummate with age and use but as the photo's show it displays very well. Standing 19 inches high[48cm] to the top of original brass folding handle x 10.5 ins wide[27cm] x 7 ins deep[18cm]. A handsome clock in good working order. Very heavy but will be well packed and sent next day courier or you are welcome to pick up and see it working. I may be able to help with delivery depending where you live or meet half way for fuel cost. Feel free to ask any questions or for a friendly chat call 01225 863706H or 07512431858M.
