English Rose Window Skeleton Clock By Evans Of Handsworth
The famed Rose Window of Paris’ Notre-Dame Cathedral comes to life in this dramatic mechanical marvel. Crafted by distinguished English clockmakers Evans of Handsworth in the late 1800s this remarkable skeleton clock is a fine example of the beauty and complexity Evans clocks are prized for. An 8-day 2-train fusee movement powers this clock, which strikes a bell on the hour and half hour. The elaborately pierced and engraved oversized dial displays the time on Roman numerals. The clock rests on an elegant velvet covered wood base beneath a mouth-blown oval glass dome.
Evans of Handsworth held a place as one of the most celebrated makers of English skeleton clocks in the mid to late 19th century, known to produce some of the most complex and extravagant timepieces. Evans clocks in this condition have become some of the most highly desirable skeleton clocks on the market today.
This clock bears a full restoration and a one-year warranty.
