English Fusee, 5-glass, striking Library clock in a mahogany case by Merrick, Windsor & Eton. Circa 1845.

Another very nice example of an iconic 'Five-glass' library clock

Stock No:   14309

The substantial eight day duration, five pillar, double chain fusee movement with Anchor Recoil escapement, pendulum fixing knob and rack striking the hours on a large bell. Also having shouldered plates.

Behind a 5 1/2" square silvered brass dial with black-filled Roman numerals, minute ring with bold hour markings, corner Rococo pattern engraving and the centre being signed by the maker "Merrick (of) Windsor & Eton". Also having a chamfered and silvered sight frame set within the glazed front door and blued steel spade hands.

Contained in a well-figured mahogany case of good colour and patina. With locking front and rear doors, thick bevelled glass panels to the top and sides and brass inlaid chamfered door edges. The top being stepped above the uppermost moulding. A strike repeating pull cord exits from the right side of the case and the lower portion below the door has a large, sweeping, Ogee moulding above the top-moulded skirt and mounted upon four square pad feet.

* Joseph Merrick is listed as working in Windsor & Eton from 1842 to 1853. This is a very pleasing clock of good proportions. The case retains its antique look and is in very good condition. It is rare to find a double fusee example of this type of clock and with these proportions.

** It is extremely rare to find a clock marked "Windsor & Eton" and it would be nice if this clock was sold to someone who lived in that area.
