James Edwards, Stourbridge - A Striking Skeleton Clock

A   beautifully   made   Victorian   brass   skeleton   clock   with   an   eight-day   duration,   double   fusee   movement   striking   the   hours   on a   gong,   with   pull   repeat.   With   five-spoke   wheelwork   throughout   and   beautifully   worked   brass   and   steelwork.   The   silvered dial   has   scalloped   edges,   engraved   black   Roman   hour   numerals   and   signature   'Dumville,   Stockport',   being   the   retailer   of the   clock,   and   has   decorative   blued   steel   hands.   The   scroll   shaped   framework   to   the   clock   is   typical   of   the   design   used   by James Edwards of Stourbridge and can be safely attributed to his workshops. (See   Derek   Roberts,   'British   Skeleton   Clocks'   pages   173-177   for   photographs   of   similar   clocks   and   a   further   history   of Edwards) Height: 13 inches (33 cms) Please click on images to enlarge: Any additional images are shown below
