Description of the item

This is a very fine Victorian 'drop-dial' clock with a rare twin-fusee (therefore striking) movement.
The case is veneered in flame mahogany and is extremley well patinated. The 8-day movement strikes the hours on a bell. The painted 12" dial retains the original signature and is protected by a spun-brass bezel.

Information about the maker

The clock was made by Hendrick who is listed as working in Owestry (Welsh Borders) in 1879 (Loomes). We estimate this clock was made slightly earlier than that, c1870.
