LOT 1100
An impressive early 20th Century English mahogany and chased gilt brass bracket clock with eight day twin fusee movement striking and chiming on eight bells and four gongs, the brass arched dial with silvered circular 'slow/fast' indicator flanked by silvered 'chime/silent' and 'Whittington/Westminster' circular indicators, above a silvered chapter ring with gilt Arabic numerals framing an engraved foliate centre, all within a frame of pierced scroll fretwork, the India inspired mahogany case with finely chased gilt brass mounts, surmounted with a large dome flanked by four smaller dome finials above a pair of columns and pierced fret panels, the breakfront base with foliate borders and carved bracket feet, height approx 87cm, with pendulum and winder (minor faults). Note: this clock was featured in a full page advertisement of an 'English (London Made) Bracket Chiming Clock' that appeared in the Grimshaw Baxter & J.J Elliott Ltd catalogue sometime after 1909. It was suggested the clock was intended for the overseas market, with India the most likely destination.
