I have just received some excellent quality bracket clocks from a private collection all of which have been well looked after all of which will be listed over the next few weeks. Some excellent quality bracket clocks please keep your eyes open over the next few months. First of all a bit of info and provenance. The clock was working when removed from the property however the clock now requires a new power source for it to run. My knowledge of electric clocks is very limited but i will try and give information on what i was told. The clock is a unique extremely well made earth driven electro-magnetic clock built by a L Allen of Southport signed to dial and is operated in the simular manner that was devised by Percival Arthur Bentley in 1910. It has 4 pillar movement with x shape plates incorporating a ratchet escape wheel advanced and checked by an arrangement of levers fitted to the upper section of 1 & 1/4 seconds wood rod pendulum incorporating a brass cased electro magnetic coil passing along a fixed horizontal iron bar over the cylindrical brass bob with the impulse field activated by electrical contacts and circuitry fitted at the base of the movement and with suspension from a brass post fitted to the back board. I personally dont undertsand any of this but this was the information that was passed to me. Stunning antique English solid oak slimline proportioned electric regulator longcase grandfather clock. Fantastic slimline design in excellent condition and having cottage size proportions.
The case has a removable hood which has a glazed fixed panel to the front to protect the dial and has some quality hand carved decoration to the pediment which also sits on the sides. The trunk and base both have removable panels to them, the base having a bullseye glass pane through which the pendulum bob can be seen swinging when on display. The case is in excellent original condition with only minimal age discrepancies.This clock was scratch built by a English clock maker L Allen Of Southport and looks to be all wired up correctly and was in full working order when removed from home but unfortunately their is no power supply so one will be needed. 9.5 inch squared silvered dial with brass chapter ring and corner spandrels. Roman numerals & original steel hands. The dial has a silvered calendar dial around the inside of the chapter ring and a cylindrical moonphase rotating 2 coloured ball feature to the centre, both turn over with the movement.
Dial is in great original condition. The dial is signed L.
Original electro magnetic regulator movement. Movement is in full working order however it is missing its power supply and all seems to be correctly wired up ready to work, comes with original pendulum. The clock was in full working order when removed from home.
A new power supply is needed. Allen of Southport believed to operate like a Percival Arthur Bentley electro mechanical earth clock.
The clock measures 77.5 inches high x 14.5 inches wide x 8 inches deep. The slimline trunk measures 8.5 inches wide x 6 inches deep. Dial measures 9.5 inches square.
This is a perfect investment clock and a beautiful display piece of extremely high quality. Looks absolutely fantastic wherever it is displayed and a true talking point of any room.
Exceptional clock which will only grow in value. ALL antique clocks after transport no matter how well they have been looked after or serviced may require setting up, adjustments and setting into beat when you receive them and i always recommend a professional or an experienced clock person to do this correctly for you.
