A beautifully made regency period Brass Bound Rosewood bracket clockwork pull repeat by John Frodsham (1781 – 1849).
The stunning rosewood case having carefully selected veneers has been carefully cleaned to remove every bit of dust, grime and years of applied wax to reveal it’s original highly polished shellac finish, The case is fully brass bound and has no dents, scratches or careless marks to the case which is finished with its original fretwork and urn finial.
The well made five pillar movement having Frodsham Gracechurch Street London engraved onto the backplate. The movement has been fully overhauled by me personally and comes with a full three years guarantee to ensure piece of mind in your investment.
John Frodsham (1781-1849) was born in 1781 and is recorded as working as a watch and chronometer maker at 33 Gracechurch Street in London, moving there in 1825 having taken over from his father William Frodsham (1728-1805). John was made a liveryman of the worshipful company of clockmakers in 1830 and the firm became Frodsham and Sons in 1835. Because this clock is engraved simply “Frodsham” I would date this clock to the short window of 1825-1830.
