English giant carriage clock by Edward Funnell - Details:

This very substantial giant English carriage clock by Edward Funnell of Brighton, England, has a three-train fusee movement quarter-striking Westminster chimes on four gongs.

The brass-framed beveled glass front door opens to a white porcelain dial with blued-steel hands, framed by a gilt-brass engine-turned mask.

The glazed side panels reveal the heavy brass plates that support the interesting and complicated movement.

The glazed rear door opens to the four gong striking mechanism and the back plate is signed “Edw. Funnell, BRIGHTON” . The lever escapement platform can be seen through a glazed panel in the top next to the repeat button.

After a full restoration, this clock runs well and chimes progressively at each quarter on four gongs.

Circa 1880

Dimensions: 12” to top of handle, 7.5” wide at base, 6” deep
