James Edwards, Stourbridge - A Striking Skeleton Clock

A beautifully made Victorian brass skeleton clock with an eight-day duration, double fusee movement striking the hours on  a gong, with pull repeat. With five-spoke wheelwork throughout and beautifully worked brass and steelwork. The silvered  dial has scalloped edges, engraved black Roman hour numerals and signature 'Dumville, Stockport', being the retailer of  the clock, and has decorative blued steel hands. The scroll shaped framework to the clock is typical of the design used by  James Edwards of Stourbridge and can be safely attributed to his workshops.   (See Derek Roberts, 'British Skeleton Clocks' pages 173-177 for photographs of similar clocks and a further history of  Edwards) Height: 13 inches (33 cms) Please click on images to enlarge: Any additional images are shown below

James Edwards

See Derek Roberts, 'British Skeleton Clocks' pages 173-177 for photographs of similar clocks and a further history of James  Edwards. Although made by Edwards this clock is signed for the clockmaker Dumville of Stockport who would've 'bought-in' this  piece to retail. There were a number of clockmakers named Dumville working in Stockport at the time of this clocks  manufacture, all seemingly the sons of the maker John who died in 1797, The retailer of this particular example, Nathaniel  Dumville, was a well-known clokmaker in his own right and was known to have been working in Hillgate, Stockport from  circa 1828 until at least 1841.

Price: £3,200.00
