Super 19th century "drop-dial" wall clock.

A superbly-built wall clock from the mid-nineteenth century in a mahogany drop-dial case, allowing the use of a longer pendulum than in the similar "school" clocks. It has a 12" (30cm) diameter dial and is 22" (55cm) in height; the case is in beautiful mahogany with the wood carefully chosen to show the quality.

The maker, Ebenezer Fisher, was apprenticed in 1801 to William Johnson of Bengworth in Worcestershire and subsequently worked in several towns such as: Birmingham from 1828 to 1834, Bilston in 1835, Walsall in 1851 as well as Wednesbury and West Bromwich until at least 1860. This clock can be accurately dated to 1835 or so.

The movement has recently been overhauled and is guaranteed for two years from the date of purchase.
