A good Victorian period English table timepiece in its original finely fitted mahogany travelling case.
The 5 inch round silvered dial has Roman hour numerals, a subsidiary seconds dial below XII and it appears to retain its original finely tapered spade tipped blued steel hands. The heavy duty single fusee timepiece movement has a platform lever escapement with a Fast/Slow adjustment lever set within the dial plate above XII.
The elegant fitted mahogany case has a brass outer bezel, high quality brass hinges and lock and an inset carrying handle to the top.
Overall diameter of the brass cased movement: 6 in (15.25 cm) excluding the wheat ear engraved brass carrying handle
Mahogany Carrying Case Width: 7 ¼ in (18.5 cm)
Mahogany Carrying Case Height: 7 ½ in (19 cm)
* As the clock is only signed Jones, London rather than with the maker’s initials, it is somewhat difficult to pinpoint exactly which Jones it was, given the plethora of London clockmakers by the same name listed during that period
This was possibly made by Edward Jones who was working in London between 1851 – 1881.HW5950
