A good English fusee, Drop-dial wall clock with a wooden dial. Made by Barraud, London. Circa 1835.

A very good example of a mahogany Drop-dial wall clock.

Stock No:   14403

The eight day duration, gut fusee movement with Anchor Recoil escapement, four knopped pillars and shouldered plates. Also  having a decorative lyre shaped crutch and a substantial pendulum.

Fitted to a 12" diameter wooden dial by using a brass 'false ring'. The dial which is separate to the surround has its original cream and now crackled base paint, black minute ring and Roman hour numerals and also, the maker's signature bearing "BARRAUD, Cornhill, LONDON" to the upper centre. The blued steel hands are quite fine the hour of which has a spade end. The cast brass, locking bezel has a bowed glass.

The mahogany veneered case consists of a very narrow and moulded dial surround over a well-figured drop trunk which has brass inlay in a simple symmetrical angular design. It is flanked by fan 'ears' with a shaped corbel and is divided from the rounded bottom by a fluted moulding to the front and sides. The convex bottom also has brass line inlay which has floral circles to the corners. It also has a locking and cockbeaded curved door. Both plain sides have access doors.

* This is a good example of a wooden-dialled Regency style wall clock in both its condition and originality. It is of good colour throughout. The Barraud family were a Clockmaking dynasty and were known for producing fine quality clocks.

Dimensions:                20" high x 13 1/2" wide x 6" deep to the high point of the glass.

Circa:                          1835 (late Regency).

Condition:                    Excellent throughout. The movement has not been overhauled by me but is working
                                    very well and keeping good time. The dial is in exceptional condition for its type and
                                    age with only minor losses of its base paint such as around the winding hole. The case
                                    is in restored condition with both locks present and working.

Price:                           £4,250 in it's present and working condition however, unless overhauled by me it
                                    does not carry a guarantee. If you would like a guarantee provided to the movement
                                    then the timescale and price can be discussed upon enquiry. The retail price of this
                                    example with the movement fully overhauled at the point of sale would be in  the
                                    region of £5,750 therefore, a considerable saving can be made by you.
