Stock No:   14106

The eight day duration, four pillar, gut fusee movement with Anchor Recoil escapement, rectangular plates and long pendulum.

Behind a 12" diameter flat, painted iron dial with black Roman numerals, minute ring, the maker's/retailer's name: W(illia)m. HOWLETT (of) CHELTENHAM, steel spade hands and a cast brass hinged bezel with silvered sight ring, thick bevelled glass and a bronze finish.

Contained in a well-carved and executed oak case of good colour and patina. The dial surround and trunk ears being deeply, entirely and profusely carved with oak leaves and acorns. The plain-grained and lighter trunk having a quarter rounded bottom with a curved and cockbeaded locking door. The front portion being separated by a straight moulding and having a shaped and glazed pendulum aperture with polished cast brass frame and edge stringing to match the lower door. This enables the polished brass pendulum bob to be clearly seen whilst swinging. The trunk sides both have access doors.

* A very original and untouched wall clock. The contrasting light and dark timber will allow it to compliment virtually any other oak furniture. This timepiece is begging to be situated in an oak or country kitchen. The carving is sumptuous and apart from minor shrinkage, the case is undamaged. The dial retains all of its original paint, which only shows signs of minor wear. Also, there is a slight shadow where the hour hand has shielded the sun from bleaching the dial whilst not running for many years!
