A rare opportunity to buy an oak barrel, converted into a mechanical timepiece clock around the turn of the 1900s, presumably made as a bespoke piece for a pub or similar. We have added a sturdy glass top with removable centre to access the hands. This has four glass locating mounts beneath.
The barrel is fitted with a quality mechanical 8-day chain fusee timepiece movement with platform escapement. The regulation lever is attached to the rear of the dial.
The 12-inch dial consists of aluminium Roman numerals in relief against the top of the barrel. It bears a plaque for G. ECCLES & SON, LIVERPOOL.
George Eccles & Son appears in the 1900 Gores Directory of Liverpool and Birkenhead trade directory in the Watch Manufacturers section at 29 Ranelagh Street, Liverpool.
Original matching aluminium brass hands.
