James Edwards

Catalog Description:

A small Regency skeleton timepiece, circa 1830, by James Edwards of Stourbridge. A small Regency skeleton timepiece, circa 1830, by James Edwards of Stourbridge. This renowned maker worked between 1828-1860, in his early years in High Street, Stourbridge, Worcestershire. He based his clocks around one design; a very similar example to this one is shown on page 26 of "Skeleton Clocks" by Derek Roberts. He was the first maker to sell his clocks to other retailers, pre-dating both Smiths and Evans in this regard. Thus no clocks exist which are signed by him and this example is signed for Mallett of Barnstaple in Devon. John Mallett is recorded as working in Barnstaple from 1811-1845. The elegant scroll frame is typical of Edwards' work. The movement has five spoke wheels throughout with six spokes to the skeletonised going barrel. The anchor escapement has horned pallets, another Edwards hallmark. The plinth is rosewood with boxwood inlay. We have not yet found a replacement dome. The plinth and clock are currently being restored and overhauled and will be ready in late January.
