Thomas Cole, London - An Engraved Strut Clock

A   particularly   fine   8   day   travelling   clock   by   Thomas   Cole,   circa   1850.   Although   not   signed   by   Cole   on   the   dial,   the   name   'Cole' is clearly stamped behind the mask. The   shaped   oval   silvered   dial   has   Roman   numerals   with   fine   floral   engraving   to   the   centre   and   typical   Cole   style   blued   steel hands.   To   the   top   of   the   case   is   a   hinged   oval   handle   which   can   be   lowered   when   the   clock   is   put   into   its   travelling   case. Beneath   the   dial   is   a   finely   engraved   silvered   rectangular   panel   behind   bevelled   glass   and   this   is   surrounded   by   further engraved and gilded decoration. The   clock   has   its   original   leather   covered   travelling   case   lined   with   blue   velvet   and   the   shape   of   this   follows   the   lines   of   the clock.   When   taken   out   of   the   case   a   curved   bar   at   the   base   may   be   rotated   so   as   to   enable   the   clock   to   stand   upright. Complete with original winding key. Height: 7½ inches (19 cms) including travelling case Please click on images to enlarge: Any additional images are shown below
