The 12 inch engraved and silvered dial with a fine “weathered” finish, signed as above and with pierced, blued steel hands, is written with Roman numerals with Arabic minutes in the slender outer circle. The cast brass, concave section bezel has its original lock. The 8 day fusee verge movement has 4 pillars and tapered plates.
We have records of two other English Dials by this maker, a 16 inch wood dial and an 18 inch wood dial, both with verge escapement and both, as in the present example, signed Royal Exchange without a street name. The 16 inch was in the Strike One definitive exhibition of 1978 – ‘English Dial Clocks’. Ronald E Rose in the standard work English Dial Clocks illustrates only two clocks with a double saltbox case, both with 12 inch silvered dials.
