A mid 19th century twin chain fusee gong-striking skeleton clock, on a stepped base mounted on an ebonised base under a glass dome.

The maker is not known for certain, but it may be attributed to John Smith and Sons, St. John's Square, Clerkenwell, London, a firm established in 1780 and which became one of the largest manufacturers of both domestic and public clocks throughout the 19th century. This particular clock has a plaque on the back of the base, dating it to 1877.

The eight-day movement with anchor escapement is of very high quality, the wheelwork having six spoke crossings. It strikes the hours on a mellow coiled gong, with a pull repeat cord. The clock has a fine wood rod pendulum.

The Roman dial features a pierced silvered chapter ring with a shaped outer minute track and bold blued steel moon hands.
To be overhauled and guaranteed for 3 years.
