Small sized, weight-driven Regulator in walnut c.1870.

Small sized regulators are quite rare, this one being 32½" x 10½" compared with 42" x 13".

The proportions of this one are sublime. With an 8 day, dead-beat escapement with blued steel hands and having the subtler, more sophisticated lines of a hand-built Vienna rather than the more garish, mass-produced German regulators.

Large and fine quality eight day Wall Regulator by Fattorini & Sons of Bradford.

Striking the hours and half hours on a gong, with dead-beat escapement of the Graham type, and having a full seconds pendulum make it a very accurate clock. A good quality movement with beautifully engineered weight pulleys, and a restrained architectural style to the case made dramatic by the ebonised finish give this clock a very contemporary and stylish look in keeping with today's minimalist society.

Fattorini is listed in Brian Loomes as 'Watch and clockmaker...1826-1871' and interestingly designed and made the original F.A. cup.

I have intentionally left a longcase in the picture to show the size of this clock

A fine and rare Victorian mahogany Longcase Regulator by Condliff, Liverpool.

The arched top with hinged door to one side, above glazed sides and front. The front with pierced and carved floral tracery. The panelled plinth with fine quality flame veneers. The 13 ¾ silvered brass dial signed Condliff of Liverpool with typical arrangement of main and subsidiary dials, finely engraved and having slender blued steel hands.

The movement being a very substantial lacquered gilt brass, 8 day duration with very rare twin weight drive of a single train movement. Having dead-beat escapement with jewelled pallets and beat adjustment. The movement also incorporating finely made lantern pinions and beautifully worked wheels. The arbours with jewelled adjustable stops. The very heavy mercury jar pendulum within steel and brass surround fixed to a rod of invar.

With careful regulating this clock can achieve an accuracy of 0.5 of a second per week. Dials signed by Condliff, are very rare indeed – usually being signed by the retailer.

The case, 199cm (H) 58cm (W) 32cm (D) - (stock no:571)

Liverpool C.1880 probably had more people working in the clock and watch industry than any other city in the realm. James Condliff set up at 32 Gerrard Street, Liverpool in 1816 and his business went on to become one of the most successful in the country, known in particular for his superb regulators and skeleton clocks. The Condliff family was made up of James, Joseph, John and Thomas, and appears to run from 1816 to the 1940’s.

 
     
   
 

   

A mahogany, 8 day striking Longcase Regulator by Thomas Condliff.

The round painted iron dial with outer Arabic numbers, inner Roman numerals and subsidiary seconds dial, signed T.CONDLIFF LIVERPOOL.

The unusual hands are definitely the original ones and are peculiar to Thomas Condliff. The hand is mimicked on
the exceptionally heavy pendulum bob, and is used as a pointer to the numbered regulator nut. This style of hand can also be compared to a skeleton clock by Thomas Condliff – Figure 3/25, B. Page 111 of Derek Roberts ‘Skeleton Clocks 1800-1914.’

Housed within a finely moulded mahogany outer ring with well executed rococo ears, over a trunk with canted corners, chamfered capitols and bases. The glazed door crossbanded with mahogany, and inner cockbead of ebony. The glass with gilded word “regulator” applied to it. Inside, two high quality brass cased weights, hung from 6 spoke pulley wheels.

The gilded wooden pendulum rod supporting a massive brass cased bob with numerically engraved regulator nut and steel pointer hand; in front of a silvered brass beat scale. The movement being a dead-beat, having maintaining power and showing many signs of quality.

Height: 76" (stock no:632)
