Whitehurst Pattern Skeleton Timepiece

Clock of The Week – Whitehurst Pattern Skeleton Timepiece

A particularly rare Whitehurst pattern Skeleton clock. Although there are quite a few patterns of skeleton clocks that have been made over the years, This particular one is particularly recognisable as a Whitehurst pattern and was only used by the company until it transferred to John Smith of Derby.The clock is also illustrated in F.B Boyer-Collard book titled Skeleton Clocks. 
The beautifully made plates have an elegant style to them and have been made to a high standard. We have carefully removed all of the old tarnish and polished all parts using an old method with chalk. Using chalk, although labour intensive gives a finish that cannot be replicated using modern compounds.
The original glass dome is perfect with no faults, cracks or chips and is finished off with a braided rope to the white marble base.

Delivery – please note that due to the fragile nature of antique glass domes, I would highly recommend collecting the clock in person or for a small fee ( fuel cost) I will personally deliver the clock and set up. For export sales, I would only recommend having the clock professionally packaged by IEP in Newark, UK.
