This elegant mahogany tall case or grandfather clock was made by the prestigious Elliott of London, England. The clock case was made in the U.S. and sold through the H. Muhr’s Sons of Philadelphia; a highly regarded watch, jewelry and silversmith store on Chestnut Street in Philadelphia. The Elliott clock works are original. The eight day movement requires winding once a week and is in excellent working condition. The clock strikes ever hour and half hour. The two large brass weights and pendulum are also original. The fancy clock face has cast brass putti or cherubs surrounding the dial. Notice the raised brass numerals; decorative hands; the sweep seconds dial and the hand painted moon dial. All are original and in excellent condition. There is some loss in the blue field on the moon dial and it appears to be stable. The moon dial rotates to display the different phases of the moon as time and days progress. The solid mahogany case has an arched pediment with carved rosettes, acanthus leaves and a fan. Originally, the clock had carved finials on either side and in the center. Often these are removed in order to fit into an 8’ ceiling home. The clock face door has a working lock and key to access winding the clock. The clock has its winding key. Notice the fully turned columns on either side of the clock face and the pierced carved decorative panel on the side which allows the sound of the clock striking to resonate. Below is a beveled glass door with its original lock and key to access the pendulum and weights. Notice the panel having a heavily carved ribbon trailing over a shell – lovely! The clock rests on boldly carved paw feet. The finish is original and in excellent condition having a deep, rich color and patina. What a statement this will make in any home or office.
