|Description of the item|
This is a very attractive London retailed mantle (or table) timepiece (non striking). In the style of a Georgian bracket clock, but in miniature!
Desirably, the case retains its well patinated original finish, which is rare. It does have a couple of age related marks as a result, but is in very good order. The large photos capture the condition well. Note the wear to the rear where a too-tight dust cap had been repeatedly levered off (now fitted properly).
Its a good size at 24cm tall and has a very pleasing form with swept base. Convex dial and glass, retaining the retailer's mark for Searle & Co, Lombard St.
The fully serviced french movement retains its original lever platform escapement.
Dims: 24cm tall, 17cm max width, 9.7 max depth inc glass.
