The awesome and substantial 6 pillar mechanism signed by the maker, with original pendulum and chiming on a carillon of 8 bells with the hour struck on a ninth bell. The gothic revival, which influences the style of this clocks case, flourished from around 1830 in England and its most famous outpouring was the UK's Houses of Parliament with its famous 'Big Ben' - a clock which the firm of Thwaites & Reed were employed for many years to maintain! I will not detail the history of T&R here as there is much available for interested parties to read on the internet. Suffice to say this clock's makers have an historic pedigree and produced clocks of exceptional quality and longevity. The clock offered here today is of 8 days duration and offers the owner a choice of chime options as seen from the subsidiary in the arch of the dial. From the dial the user may also finely regulate the clocks timekeeping via the 'rise-and'fall' dial. The clock is keeping good time and chiming perfectly with a full pull repeat. The silvered dial is in nice order and the case good too save a stable shrink crack towards the top of the roofs apex - see pictures. The clock stands 23.5" (60cm) high, 15.25" (39cm) wide and 9.5" (24cm) deep. The large dial (chapter ring) measures 7.5" (19cm) in diameter.
