Seller: trotterclocks (1,240) 100%, Location: Edenbridge, Ships to: GB & many other countries, Item: 142189776736 VINTAGE SMITHS ENFIELD STRIKING MANTEL CLOCK 1954. Here for auction I have a delightful Smiths Enfield mantel clock from the early 1950's "The Morling". In good working order having been cleaned and serviced in 2015. Featuring the well known and reliable Enfield F3A 8 day movement, which strikes a single note on the half hours and the indicated hour at the hour on a coiled gong. The clock face features the Smiths skeletonised chapter ring with Arabic numerals and is white metal and finished with ornate hands in white. Dial and hands in good condition with very little marking from 60+ years of use. Dial face is enclosed with a chrome bezel fitted with a domed glass. Bezel in good condition with no play on the hinge and closing tightly on it's catch. The veneered wooden case is finished in what I believe to be a dark Cherry or Pear veneer and this is finished off in a high gloss lacquer. There are the occasional marks to be expected for the age and a very slight loss of the lacquer finish to the top of the case, but nothing serious. The front of the case has reeded vertical mouldings either side of the bezel. Dimensions of the case: Width 25 cm (10 inches) Height: 22 cm (8¾ inches). Depth 13 cm (5¼ in). A very nice and honest clock in a quite unique shape. Supplied with a key and the original pendulum. Would benefit from a good quality polish to the case. Do not use modern aerosol polishes.
