English Rafter Frame Skeleton Clock

This two-train English skeleton clock is a true mechanical marvel. Crafted from polished brass, this clock takes on a unique rafter frame form displaying not only mechanical aptitude but superb architecturally inspired design. Powering the clock is an 8-day two-train fusee movement with an anchor escapement. This remarkable clock strikes the hour and half-hour on a bell in full display. A sleek silvered chapter ring rests at the clock’s center, displaying the time on Roman numerals. The clock rests on an elegant velvet-lined wood base under a glass dome.

Skeleton clocks have long been prized by collectors, enthusiasts, and clockmakers alike. The mesmerizing exhibition of gears and moving parts masterfully showcase the beauty and complexity of clockmaking. Although originally popularized in France in the late 18th century, England was home to some of the most premier makers of skeleton clocks, producing some of the finest examples on the market. This wonderful example is no exception.

This remarkable clock bears a full restoration and a one-year warranty.
