Superb 8-day, 12” fusee dial timepiece, by distinguished provincial clock and watchmaker Moses Perkin circa 1848, in immaculate condition and excellent working order.

Moses Perkin, (born 1820), was a horologist of some note, whose master craftsmanship is much sought after today by collectors and investors alike. His workshop was at 19 Upperhead Row, Leeds. Later in life, he and his sons opened a successful jewellery business in Huddersfield.

The clocks lovely hand-crafted Mahogany roundhead styled face and box case has deep aged patination, with hinged inspection doors located to the side and bottom of the box. The clock retains its clean cream dial with black Roman numerals, exhibiting the M. Perkin, Leeds, signature, finished with an original pair of blued steel Lozenge hands secured with a pinned collet. The clocks dial is then protected by a thick convex glaze mounted in a solid brass bezel.

The clock benefits from an immaculate and fully functional 8-day single fusee movement set between shouldered plates, complete with its original 80mm diameter brass pendulum bob.

This is a fusee dial clock of outstanding presence from one of the North of England’s celebrated and distinguished clockmakers. As such, it’s a rare opportunity to purchase such an immaculate antique timepiece.
