Antique Wall Clocks and Barometer Sales

Wall clocks and barometers in Shipston-on-Stour

Wall clocks became an essential part of life in the early 19th centurywhen a change in social life meant that good time keepers were required in both industrial and domestic places. In the late 19th century, American and German makers produced quality clocks at a much more affordable price. Early barometers use a mercury tube to detect changes in air pressure, where later ‘aneroid’ examples use a vacuum capsule.

English fusee ships wall timepiece

No: 3143
Circa: Early 20th century
Height: 7 Inches

A classic example of a hand built English fusee ships timepiece and not to be confused with later ad cheaper examples. The substantial movement was built with a mechanism to even out the power of the mainspring and to stop the clock from ever being overwound (a fusee). This sets this clock apart from many others as it is of substantially higher quality than most. The very substantial brass case is complete with a dial locking mechanism and fitted to an oak back piece that really sets off the colour of the polished brass.

This clock has a particularly attractive hour and half hour strike on original coil gong making the clock sound bigger than it really is!

Circa: Early 19th century

The high quality movement striking the hours and half hours on original polished bell. The superb rococo cast brass case is of extremely high quality and retains its original gilding.

Double weight Vienna regulator

No: 3180
Circa: 1860
Height: 43 Inches
Price: Sold

A good example of a classic Vienna regulator made in the middle of the 19th century before they became so popular as to be produced in large numbers at which point they lost a lot of their charm. These earlier clocks have a simple, slim case with minimal decoration, allowing the elegance of the clock to stand out as a true art form. The attractive case crown top balances the more elaborate columns to both sides of the case and the case base itself is simple and reserved. Note the details of the patterned brass bezel to dial and fine crossings out of the weight pulleys. This clock has a superb quality movement striking the hours and half hours on original coil gong.
