ENFIELD mahogany cased 8 day time and strike mantel clock, 1930s

This handsome mantel clock was made by the Enfield Clock Company of Edmonton, London, probably around the time they were taken over by Smiths (mid 1930s). It is unusual for the period, notably for the clean lines and simplicity of the design, plus the fact it is finished in a rich golden mahogany veneer rather than the ubiquitous dark oak.

It has an 8 day key-wound pendulum movement and strikes on the hour and half-hour (the striking train can be left unwound if the strike is not required). It features a two-tone dial, blued steel hands, domed glass and hinged chromed bezel.

The clock has been fully disassembled, cleaned and serviced and the case has been polished. There are a few marks to the case, visible in the photos, but these do not justify refinishing. It is supplied in full working order with instructions on setting up and regulating.

Dial diameter 6 inches (150mm); height 220mm; max. width 305mm; max. depth 135mm. Weight 2.4kg
