Item:273684058392...........A good quality and elegant clock, as found, in need of a bit of tidying............... The 8" diameter convex painted dial is signed for 'Restell 55 & 144 High St. Croydon'. Richard Restell is recorded as working in Croydon between 1839 and 1878. The paint is all original, un-retouched, and there are some flaky places, as shown. The iron hands are original. The cast brass bezel has convex glass, and locks at the side. The key is missing - it can be opened from the inside, but a replacement key is needed. The fine quality single fusee movement has shaped plates, and a pendulum locking screw. The pendulum rod is nicely decorated. The clock runs, but could do with a clean. It is sold as found, but it looks ok to me. The case is in good condition, with nice brass inlay, brass side frets and cornucopia handles. There are some minor losses, as shown. The glazed back door is a bit flimsy, and the glass may have been replaced. The door lock is there, but the key is missing. Nothing too serious. It would respond well to a light polish.... It stands 14.5" tall, and is 10" wide x 6" deep. The buyer is welcome to collect it from me, near Bridgnorth in Shropshire, with payment in cash on collection. I will ship it worldwide, insured - please contact me for specific shipping rates.
