Stunning Anglo-American striking Drop Dial Wall Clock, the hand-crafted case being made in England (most probably London or Liverpool), and the movement being imported from the US. (The signed movement is by ‘E.N. Welch’ of Connecticut). This style of clock is often known as the "hollow, string and dot." (The 'hollow' referring to a clocks lower aperture space, whilst the 'string and dot' refers to the skillfully hand-crafted marquetry around the clocks case).

The clocks round-head architectural Rosewood case with deep aged patination, has beautifully hand-crafted Mahogany garniture and visually stunning Mother of Pearl floral leaf and Boxwood intarsia. The garniture includes its original carved side-ears and front hinged inspection door, leading down to a line of exquisite decorative fluting and its well-proportioned Ogee shaped base. The clocks original white metal dial has black Roman numerals and “J.Bartle, Grimsby” painted onto its face, finished with a pair of original blued steel Trefoil Gothic hands secured with a pinned collet. The dial is then protected by glaze mounted in a solid cast brass bezel. (Note: James Bartle, born 1830, was an established watchmaker and signature clock retailer in Grimsby).

The clock is driven by an E.N. Welch robust and highly efficient American 8-day pendulum movement and strikes its ‘ting bell’ on the hours only. It comes with its original brass pendulum bob and a steel winding key.

A superb original example of these highly popular and much sought-after Anglo-American drop dial clocks!
