D328. A fine twin chain fusee ivy leaf skeleton clock which may be safely attributed to Smiths of Clerkenwell. They would have supplied it to the eminent clock-maker J.H. Jump of 11 Old Bond Street, London whose finely executed plaque adorns the base of the clock. The frame is a little different to that illustrated in British Skeleton Clocks by Derek Roberts in Fig 19 for instance, in that it has been extended down by a loop, possibly because it is a two train clock.

All the wheelwork has five crossings and is finely executed and the frame, whilst being quite substantial, is also most attractive. The clock strikes the hours on a gong and the halves on a bell. Although the plaque on the base is the original the base has had to be altered to accomodate a new dome.

Ht with/ without dome:- 24"/21.5" (61/54.5cms.) £7,650.
