Item:123952369341Good Victorian Skeleton Clock passing on the Strike c1850-90 recently serviced. Style: Standard scroll frame timepiece with passing strike which was produced in much greater numbers than any other design of skeleton clocks in the second half of the nineteenth century. Maker: No makers stamp but either Evans of Handsworth, Birmingham or Smiths of Clerkenwell, London (not smiths mantel clocks). The two makers between them probably produced more skeleton clocks than all the others put together. The vast majority of skeleton clocks produced by these makers were made in the second half of the nineteenth century, by which time the practice of makers signing their clocks had almost ceased. It's doubtful if Evans put his name to as much as 5% and Smiths would have been far less! Serviced: Sept 2019 by myself, movement stripped, cleaned, rebushed, spring checked and cleaned, polished, new Gut, oiled, tested. NB dial professionally restored see photos before and after. Frame not Lacquered I do not like the Matthew Norman look for skeleton clocks although we polished the frame with renaissance microcrystalline wax polish. Orignal clock, base and glass. Very good example. Only negative one of wooden feet chipped see photo. Last two photos pre restoration. Size with the glass dome fitted Height 17 inches (43cm) Width 11.5 Inches (29cm) Depth 7 inches (17.5cms) Can deliver abd set up if not to far, please ask.
