English fusee dial clock striking on a bell. Mahogany case with bow dial signed 'Brockbank Atkins & Son'. Circa 1845.

A very nice double fusee wall clock.

Stock No: 14245

The substantial eight day duration, five knopped pillar movement with Anchor recoil escapement, shouldered plates and rack striking the hours on a top bell.

Behind a 12 " diameter, painted iron bowed dial with black Roman numerals, outer minute ring and signed below centre "BROCKBANK ATKINS & SON, Cornhill, LONDON. The rear of the dial is marked with the spelling of the maker so that the dial writer could be either blamed or exonerated in case of spelling errors! This was always the usual practice and served as evidence regarding the signature on the dial. Also having matching steel 'Open moon' hands and a locking cast brass bezel with high bowed glass.

Contained in a mahogany case of good colour and patina with a thin bezel surround, side door to the back box and a rounded veneered bottom with curved and cockbeaded locking door.

* Brockbank, Atkins & Son are listed by Baillie as working circa 1840 whilst Brian Loomes records them as 1844 to 1857 (perhaps at another premises?) I feel that this particular movement is circa 1845. The makers were a very successful partnership and clocks made by them usually carry a premium. This example is lovely and except for historical case repairs is in good, original condition.

Dimensions:                         14 1/2" diameter x 6 1/2" deep including the doming of the glass.        

Circa:                                   1845.

Condition:                             Good and original, awaiting overhaul (included in the purchase price).

Price:                                    £4,750.00.

Investment forecast:             4 (it is expected to increase in value by 40% over the next ten years).
