Dial Clocks

 
 
Dial Clocks first appeared in the 1720's as round-faced, black-painted, spring-driven clocks. A more successful form was the tavern clock which evolved though several forms, all of which are now very much sought after. While the need for reliable timekeeping was appreciated in the mid 18th century, it was the industrial revolution and the era of the stage coach that made it ever more important and resulted in the growth of dial clock production.
 
 
 
The Victorian period was the heyday of the dial clock when they were found in every public building. An individual mechanism which required regular winding was eventually superseded by the electric master clock and its many slaves. Nevertheless, the dial clock is still occasionally to be found performing its function accurately. It is increasingly collectors however who appreciate the simple dials and the fine workmanship of the movements.

Early 19th century 8 day mahogany drop dial Wall Clock.

Very good colour and figuring with 8 day fusee movement, with painted dial, spade hands and signed CARTER & SON, CORNHILL, LONDON. Listed in Loomes 1810. Painted 12" dial & Roman numerals. This clock has an extremely baffling feature, at 12 o'clock on the dial is a cut-out and on the other side is a little shelf area. No idea what it is for. Intriguing as the clock has nothing missing but this embellishment has been there from day one!

Fully serviced and guaranteed for one year.
