British Fusee Marine Ship Bulkhead Brass Clock, Circa Approx. Late 1800s:
For sale is an exceptionally fine British fusee marine ship brass bulkhead clock. I am assuming that this clock was made at the end of the 1800s or early 1900s. The signature on the dial is "John P. Campbell, Maker, Govan, Glasgow and the enamel appears to be in perfect condition. Mechanically the clock is in excellent condition, chain fusee with maintaining power which runs for 8 days. The platform escapement is also in very good condition and the shape of the teeth on the escape wheel clearly have the form of an English lever escapement.
The dial contains minute, hour, and seconds hands. As you can see in the third photograph, the bezel locking device is very interesting and functions very well. The hinge on the bezel is also in very good condition.
The critical dimensions are as follows:
- Weight--10 pounds, plus 5 pounds for packing
- Diameter of the time track on the enamel dial--6 3/8 inches
- Outer diameter of the bezel--8 inches
- Outer diameter of the main body of fhe brass case--7 1/2 inches
- Outer diameter of the mounting back plate--9 1/2 inches
- Depth of the clock--4 1/2 inches
The clock is in very good running condition but is sold "as is" with no warranty on timekeeping accuracy.
Please let me know if you have any questions on this outstanding fusee brass marine bulkhead clock.
