Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
This fascinating and relatively early skeleton clock bears an attractively shaped and silvered plaque to the base on which is engraved 'Roskell & Son, 817 Liverpool'. Under this is engraved 'New Balance, Resprung and repaired by Litherland and Davies & Co 1858'.
Scroll shaped plates are held together by four attractively turned brass pillars with blued steel screws. The single train chain fuzee movement has a silvered dial with Roman numerals. Blued steel seconds, minute and centre sweep hour hands are employed.
Mounted above the frame of the clock is the brass and steel balance with substantial timing and poising weights. Interestingly, the balance is placed above the movement with the blued steel hairspring above this. The velvet covered base rests on four turned and ebonised feet.
