Information about the maker
Despite a thorough examination we can't find any makers mark, which is not unusual for the period. We are quite confident it is of English manufacture. Made in the Early-Mid Victorian Period, around 1860.
The clock has been very well cared. The case is untouched and in really top condition. The movement was professionally overhauled a couple of years ago and is very clean. We've checked and oiled it. We are very happy to sell the clock with a warranty. The silvered dial shows a few signs of wear but is clean. This can resilvered in the future but should be left original for now.
Cost of Restoration
Non required. Excellent retail condition.
