This incredible brass arabesque skeleton clock is an outstanding example by the preeminent English firm of William Frederick Evans of Handsworth, Birmingham. This horologic masterpiece is in complete, working condition, powered by an 8-day movement. Not only is this clock visually stunning, but it is also a mechanical triumph with its chain-driven fusée movement. Time is told by Roman numerals on an oversized pierced, engraved and silvered chapter ring. Set upon its sapele wood base beneath its original glass dome, this magnificent clock is a work of true distinction.
