About the Clockmaker

Pewsey made clocks at 11 Lisle Street in Leicester Square and it is believed the last of the generation of clockmakers were still working (two brothers) right up to the turn of the last century. 

The fusee movement is of excellent quality and it has a single piece SOLID, slender Mahogany bezel with fantastic depth of colour and patina.

 

The mahogany bezel surrounding the dial is of particular significance as it is narrow.  As later clocks were made, the wooden bezels became wider and only the finest of clocks retained this classical narrow case style.

This again is an echo of its superior quality.

White painted dial with Roman numerals with blued steel spayed hands.

The dial is in excellent original condition and has not been over restored to retain the charm of its age.

It has a cast brass bezel, which is another reflection of the exceptional quality of this wonderful timepiece.  

Bevelled glass over dial, with side release for access to dial.

The fusee movement is excellent quality and can be accessed via door to base, pendulum can be hung here too.


DIMENSIONS:

The approximate dimensions are: 
- 15.25 inches in diameter across the case

- 6.25 inches deep

- 12 inches in diameter across the dial

 

The clock is in lovely condition has been working on our wall for past 9 months

This fine example will truly compliment any environment, from workplace to home. 

It will make a fine contribution to traditional styles and can be added to any contemporary space to add class, style and tradition

Complete with Key
