Antique English Skeleton Clock Fusee Chain Drive Circa 1850:
English Skeleton Clock with Fusee Chain Drive
Lovely, goyhic style, single-fusee skeleton clock, dating
from the second half of the 1800s. The clock features 6-spoke wheels
and six nicely turned pillars. The original hardwood base is in very
good condition. The dial, fusee chain, hands and pendulum appear to be
original to the clock. The clock is currently working well and accurately indicates the time. The dial is attractively aged with crisp, black numerals and time ring. The glass dome is missing, but a suitable replacement should be available through on-line suppliers. This clock comes from our family's collection, purchased during the 1970's and maintained in storage until just recently. The clock mechanism is in exceptional, particularly so for the fusee chain drive which looks to be brand new.
Approximate measurements: 7-1/2" high. The base is 2" high, 7" long and 5" deep. This is a nice example and should make a nice addition to someone's
