|Information about the maker|
Established in 1814 by Edward J. Dent, the company embraced the Victorian fervour for technological innovation and created precision chronometers to navigate the Royal Navy and guide some of the most intrepid explorers on their voyages. Dent proved a key player in Victorian horological history manufacturing the Standard Clock at the Royal Observatory. Dent also made probably the most famous clock in the world - the Great Clock for the Houses of Parliament, familiarly known as Big Ben.
The clock is in untouched and undamaged condition. Shown before it we've even waxed it. We could just restore the movement and wax the case, or we could go further and resilver the dial etc. Its all possible but best decided by the new owner.
