Stunning Anglo-American Striking Wall Clock with a full glazed hinged front door. The handcrafted case being made in England (most probably London or Liverpool), and the movement being imported from the US, a distinctive New Haven Clock Company mechanism.

The clock is in excellent general condition, having been professionally cleaned, renovated and serviced in our workshop during December 2020. The clocks nicely patinaed Mahogany and Pine Wood case, has beautifully decorative Fruit Wood, Ebony and Boxwood marquetry and its fabulous architectural design includes a scarce 2-piece Ogee base, separated by rolled scrolls. It retains much of its original hand-crafted wooden embellishment, with apex finials, turned side-columns, internal fretwork, and further finials lower down. In keeping with the general authentic design spec of these much sought-after wonderful old timepieces, the clocks garniture also includes an authentic (probably original) case-back mirrored tablet secured to the rear of the drop-down aperture and a sculptured brass pendulum bob in the style of a mercurial shaped appendage.

The clocks original ivory coloured metal dial has been professionally restored to an extremely high standard, with black painted Roman numerals and its unique legend “Flinn & Co., Coventry”, and is finished with a pair of original blued steel Lozenge style hands secured with a pinned collet. The dial is then surrounded by a spun brass bezel, mounted within the hinged glazed door fretwork. (Note: Flinn and Co., was an exclusive clock and watch jeweller based at 15 Broadgate, Coventry, founded by John Flinn in c1850. His family dynasty would continue to ply their trade in the city under this name, until the late 1970’s).

The robust and highly efficient New Haven 8-day pendulum driven movement is set between two skeleton brass plates, (the backplate having the New Haven logo stamped into it). The clock strikes its original cast iron bell on the hours only and comes with a period authentic brass winding key.
