Exceptionally lovely antique Art Nouveau silver framed travel clock. Roman numerals on a white enamelled dial with split second dial. Detailed brass bezel set into a beautifully repousse worked silver frame. Hallmarked for the Birmingham Assay Office 1900 and maker's mark for the Douglas Clock Co (known to be active 1897 to 1903). The clock stands solidly on a brass easel support which folds out from its back. 30-hour movement with cylinder escapement held in an engine-turned brass body. Integral winding key and thumb-button to set hands. Aperture to allow the movement to be regulated. Excellent time keeper. Maximum frame dimensions: 10.5cm in width and 11.5cm height.
Art Nouveau Silver Framed Easel Travel Clock 1900
This beautiful clock is in very good overall condition commensurate with its age. There are a few extremely minor, barely visible flat spots to its frame. Very small area of damage to top-right corner of frame - not easy to see. The dial has a nearly invisible hair-line crack above the split second dial. All shown in images but very minor thus difficult to see but included here as part of the item's comprehensive description. Please see images as these form an important part of the description.
