A E Jones bronze and silver clock

Description

A bronze and silver clock made by A E Jones, circa 1910.

The clock is made from planished and patinated bronze decorated silver banding applied with rivets, typical of that used on A E Jones mixed metal pieces. The four silver legs have paw feet and cast rams heads at the top. 

The clock has an original “St Dunstan Ware” paper label on the back. St Dunstan Ware was the trade name for Jones’s mixed metal pieces around this time. The label states that the clock “requires no cleaning but the occasional use of a little furniture polish will add to the richness of the bronze“. The base of the clock is also marked with the design number “1672”.

The French movement with white enamel dial, typical of that used in Jones clocks, has been fully overhauled and comes with a guarantee (ends in Dec 20). Time keeping is not perfect as you’d expect in a clock that’s 110 years old!

Comes with an original key.
