A very attractive timepiece skeleton clock dating from the third quarter of the nineteenth century.

The clock is supported on a polished brass ivy leaf frame. The silvered open dial is intricately fretted with a similarly floral theme to the frame. The combination of the open dial and frame give a neat uncluttered look to this skeleton clock.

The fusee timepiece movement has an 8-day duration.

Original matching blued steel moon hands.

The frame is mounted onto a blue velvet-covered ebonised wooden base, protected by an antique glass oval dome edged with cord.
Overhauled and guaranteed for 3 years.
Although it was rare for a clock in this era to be signed by their maker, the ivy leaf frame is identical to two clocks shown in “Skeleton Clocks of Britain 1800-1914” by Derek Roberts (p.57 & 58). From catalogues available, Roberts attributes this design to Smiths of Clerkenwell, one of the two most specialist and accomplished makers of skeleton clocks in the latter part of the 1800s.
