Favourite Item
A finely made arabesque-frame skeleton timepiece dating from the second half of the 19th century.

The elaborately scrolled polished brass frames are united by seven turned pillars. Unusually, this design has a third frame supporting the dial.

The single chain fusee movement has an 8-day duration with anchor escapement, with six-spoke wheel work throughout. The clock has a wooden rod pendulum with zinc cylinder bob.

The silvered pierced chapter ring has black Roman numerals with very bold black steel fleur-de-lys hands, which make telling the time by this skeleton clock rather easier than most.

The clock is mounted on an ebonised base and under a glass dome.
Overhauled and guaranteed for 3 years.
The style of pendulum, together with the other indications of very fine quality of craftsmanship point us to Evans of Holdsworth as the maker. The clock is unsigned, as was about 95% of Evans' output.
The identical clock features on page 57 of Skeleton Clocks Britain 1800-1914, by Derek Roberts.
