England Shelf Ship

Catalog Description:

C.1880, English, Large 8-day ship's timepiece, as-found, with holes in dial filled. This large cast brass case is made to attach to a wall, but is now mounted in a walnut bracket. The dial is heavy silvered brass, well engraved with Roman numerals, which now have paint instead of dial wax. There must have been a name or something on the dial that has now been filled in with brass and solder. The unmarked movement is of very robust proportions, and is enclosed in a heavy brass box with a sliding brass side to expose the escapement for adjustment. It is constructed so the balance works in a horizontal plane. The hands are original. A signed American piece of this quality would bring several thousand dollars. Height 13"
