Market

The Antique clock market has large market appeal as evident with Bonhams holding regular horological auctions in both London and New York.  In recent years this growth has seen several records broken at auction.   In 2008, Christie’s Hong Kong generated HK$281 million (£18 million) from its Magnificent Clocks for the Imperial Chinese Market from the Nezu Museum sale. Not only did the fifteen-lot sale set a world record for any single horological auction, new record prices were achieved for clocks from both England and China. In 2007,Christie’s London fetched approximately £9 million, the highest recorded auction price for a clock, for a jewelled Fabergé-egg clock made in the early 20th century. Sotheby’s London sold a Joseph Knibb table clock (ca. 1677) for £1.3 million in 2012 and a gilt-metal astronomical clock from Augsburg for £158,500 in July 2013.

This is a pillar/portico timepiece with a dome shaped pediment surmounted by a floral gilt finial in the centre and gilt ball finials to either side just above a horizontal cornice which sits over the dial surrounded by four 'ivorine' rope twist colonettes with brass Corinthian type columns having ornate brass bases. The base platform follows the construction of the pediment while the case sits on gilt metal lion paw feet.

Case: 40cm x 12cm x 18cm cottage style solid oak case with wooden diamond decoration across the upper frieze, solid pillars flanking the dial and sitting on the horizontal solid oak base with suppressed ball feet. Dial: White porcelain coloured dial with upright Arabic hour chapter, closed minute ring, steel spade hands and the trademark of crossed arrows seen in the upper dial. Movement: Solid rectangular brass plates with spring driven movement of eight day duration, chiming on a metal rod hourly and perhaps every half hour as well. There is a countwheel striking system and a short brass pendulum rod and bob seen through a glass below the dial trimmed with gilded wood. Condition: Able to run but the strike is disabled. Oxidation of the brass bezel and some wear to the gilded glass and missing the case label.

Case: 170cm tall Hall clock made of solid mahogany with a broken arch pediment and carved terminals surmounted by three ball and spire wooden finials. Turned, free standing side columns flank the full length beveled glazed waist door which leads down to a small horizontal stepped base which sits on bun feet. The sides of the case are glazed and there are openings above which allows emission of the chimes from inside the case.

Case: This is a short drop octagon shaped 'school clock' with the head of the case made of eight individual constructs of wood (? oak) and having a black painted circular ring abound the brass glazed bezel over the dial. Below the octagonal head of the case is short drop of four sides and glazed with a decal that states, Regulator 'A'. There is an attached card that states, '#54861 Pony Express System Yorktown, NY', (likely the facility where it kept time on the wall). The round white dial, most likely made of paper (although they can be painted) has a Roman hour chapter, closed minute ring, two winding apertures with brass collets and directional arrows for winding the spring driven movement. There are steel American style spade hands. Movement The movement is not shown but most likely a skeletonized brass plate style with coiled steel springs for the eight day time and the hourly striking on a coiled wire gong. If this is an American made clock there would be the company name stamped into the movement. However, such clocks were also made in Asia, both in Japan and Korea, and they copied the American style closely. Condition: Appears to be in good physical condition and I will assume that it is able to run.
