SMALL BRACKET CLOCK DOUBLE FUSEE MAHOGANY - Superb quality










It is a pleasure to offer this fine London bracket clock of small size an in fine original condition by Maple and Co,London,dating from the last quarter of the nineteenth Century :

1845 John Blundell Maple born to John Maple who owned a small furniture store in Tottenham Court Road, London.

Thanks to John Blundell, the business was developed into a major store.

1890 The company was incorporated with John Blundell Maple as its chairman.

1891 The company was registered on 8 April to acquire the business of furniture manufacturers and upholsterers of the firm of the same name. [1]

1892 John Blundell Maple was knighted.

1897 Maple was made a baronet after having served as a member of parliament.

1933 Amalgamation with H. H. Martyn, furnishers and decorators of Cheltenham[2].

1980 Maple Holdings was acquired by Waring and Gillow[3]

1997 The store went into receivership, some of the assets being purchased by the Allders retail group.



Maple and Co were one of the foremost retailers of quality household furnishings in the Victorian era..
As can be seen by the images this clock is of small size which can fit anywhere in the home but what may not be immediately obvious is the outstanding overall quality of this clock.
No corners have been cut in this clocks manufacture.The case is made from solid mahogany on all sides and the front is inlaid with king wood .The inch painted dial bears Maples name name..
The substantial English made chain driven double fusee movement is of the best quality and strikes the hours on a coiled gong.
The overall condition is outstanding with all the original finish and patina being present.This clock has simply been carefully cleaned and waxed and requires no further work.It is ready to go straight into the home and will delight the most discerning client.
Of course the small size of this item makes it particularly attractive as it is only 13 tall ,10 wide and 7  inches deep.The dial is only 6 inches in diameter
This clock is genuine and original
Like all antiques there are the odd age related marks and small cracks but nothing specific worth mentioning apart from the dial has had small localised chipping repaired around the winding holes and 1 o'clock.This is a simple restoration but the dial can only be original once
The photographs give a good idea of the clock but are not flattering and I recommend a person viewing is encouraged to see how nice this particular item is in the flesh.
