Item:173814774014An excellent example of a very rare Welsh Rosewood eight day pagoda type bracket clock, Thomas Jenkin Jenkins is recorded as working in Dowlais, Merthyr Tydfil in 1847, one of his clocks is in the Museum of Wales ,St Fagans but otherwise very few have ever come to the market. This clock has been in storage for over 30 years so is in remarkably untouched ,unrestored condition, it will need to be serviced and properly cleaned but is in working order ,but to be clear I am selling unwarranted due to its untouched state. Please study the images carefully as they form part of the description. The rosewood is rich in colour and merely needs a good beeswaxing to return it to a gleaming state. Original gilt brass side frets remain. The dial is original and untouched with a few chips around the winding holes. The repeat cord is missing but the mechanism is in place and functional. Viewing is possible in Cardiff if required , I can arrange international shipping ,please ask for a specific quote as This is a substantially constructed clock with thick shaped London style brass plates and I believe 5 very well turned pillars.The bell makes a particularly good noise. No woodworm, the case is in very good order, the carving being particularly crisp and sharp. There are a few marks as to be expected and some small areas of shrinkage shown in the images but overall it is superb with huge potential. Approximately 19.5 inches high by 13 (max) wide and 6.5 . If you have any questions about this rare survivor please email. Please see my other items.Type:Bracket Clock, Clock Type:Bracket Clock, Material:Rosewood
