A really substantial (and very heavy) Victorian-era slate mantel clock with classical columns and marble inlay, in excellent cosmetic and working condition. The clock is an 8-day movement, with chimes on the hour and half-hour and was last professionally serviced around 2015.
The slate casing is in excellent order for its age, with hardly and chipping which is amazing considering the piece's age and size. There's a very small area of the marble inlay missing to one of the four lower panels, which isn't really noticeable but worth mentioning in the listing particulars.The dial is flanked on both sides by classical columns in marble. This is an imposing clock in fine antique condition together with its original winding key and when in operation it has a lovely melodious tick and nice subtle chime. All-in-all a collectable example of a substantial Victorian slate mantel clock, with a great look, superb detailing and in fine condition fro its age. The dial has Roman numerals in a brass mount with centre in gilt metal and face that's showing some age-related tarnishing giving it a lovely patina.
The glass front cover is also in generally good condition for its age. The clock's dimensions are as follows. Width 16 inches (41cm) - height 19 inches (49cm). And the clock is shown next to a bottle of wine in one of the listing photos to give you an idea of its true size and presence. Owing to the weight (approx 20kg plus packaging) and delicacy of this item, collection (from Glasgow) would be preferred, or I can deliver locally in person.
