Stock No:   14136

The substantial eight day duration, chain fusee movement with Anchor Recoil escapement and a counter poising weight on the backplate for the minute hand.

Behind a 17" diameter, flat painted iron dial with a black background bearing gilt Roman numerals, minute ring with triangular hour markings and the maker's name "GRIMSHAW & BAXTER" above centre and "LONDON" below centre. Also having bold and gilded spade hands and a heavily cast brass locking bezel with integral sight ring and thick bevelled flat glass.

Contained in a medium coloured oak case with ornately turned bezel surround and a plain trunk with quadrant rounded bottom containing a locking access door.

* Grimshaw & Baxter were good makers and traded from 29, Goswell Road, London from 1851 until 1871. They later became partners with J. J. Elliott who founded the well known Elliott clockmaking firm.
