Catalog Description:

C.1875, W.F. Evans, Birmingham, skeleton clock 3-fusee, 8-bell quarter chime skeleton clock in the form of Westminster Abbey. Extensive details on both Evans and this frame design can be found in Derek Roberts book titled British Skeleton Clocks, pages 64-65 and page 148. This clock has engraved plaques with the name of the retailer: Morath Bros., Liverpool. This clock also has a large 2-jar mercury pendulum (see detail image), and a glazed oak cabinet with heavy beveled glass on three sides. The cabinet may be set on a mantel or hung from the wall, and has a hinged front door for winding and adjusting the clock. This frame pattern was one of the most intricate that Evans produced, and actually has 4 plates in all, two to carry the movement, a third which supports the dial, and a 4th which appears as a portico in front of the entire assembly. Noteworthy is the horizontal pin drum and bell set which plays quite "strikingly" above the dial; plays Whittington Church sequence. Although the clock is running and chiming, it would benefit from service. Height of clock and its base, 24", overall height 32" $14,000-18,000
