carriage clock #314 - Details:
substantial little English carriage clock, while very
similar to the Viner also listed on this site, has
very unusual free-standing columns on each corner
topped with cone shaped finials. The
feel of the deeply engraved thick brass panels that
form the case, a massive handle, ornate finials, a
bronze base plate, and half-bun feet all add to the
sense of high quality workmanship of this timepiece.
Two delicately engraved brass rings surround the engine
turned silvered dial and two subsidiary dials showing
the day and date.
small seconds ring is located on the main dial just
below XII and the Breguet style hands are blued-steel
as are the hands on the other dials. A gold plaque
mounted horizontally above the access hole for adjusting
the time is engraved HANDS.
single barrel movement with vertically positioned
three-arm lever balance is signed on the back plate,
No. 314, London. The rear panel is of patinated
bronze with a gilt brass revolving brass cover for
the winding hole. Having
just been cleaned and serviced, No. 314 is in good
working order. Other
than worn paint in some of the engraved numerals,
this timepiece is in excellent condition.
