|Description of the item|
This is early C20th faithful copy of a George IV bracket clock. Of super quality for a C20th clock, and in exceptional conditional. English made by JJ Elliott, it has a convex silvered brass dial and a pendulum movement of great quality. Weekly wind. Quite deep, so check the dimensions (below). Good simple design for today's more 'minimal' taste.
|Dimensions & Specification|
Single train 8-day movement with solid brass plates. Silvered convex dial. Cast bezel holding a convex and bevelled glass. Blued-steel hands.
Mahogany case with rear mesh door.
Dimensions: 258mm tall, 180mm width, 167mm max depth.
(excluding the glass, the depth is 147mm)
|Information about the maker|
James Jones Elliott was founded by the famous English clock making dynasty generally referred to as 'Elliott'. JJ Elliott had a sucessful business at the end of the C19th. After his death in 1905, the company was sold several times with the name and logo perhaps still used. James Jones Elliott's son Frank Westcombe went on to make the RAF clocks and was the last of the volume British Clockmakers.
In super condition. The clock had survived in extraordinary condition and I assume it had spent most of its life in storage. The case retains its original high gloss finish, with just a couple of rubs to the top. Very clean clock, well represented by the larger photos (follow the link above). Dial is brighter than my photos (with their green cast) have captured.
|Cost of Restoration|
Non required. Can be taken and used straight away.
