Walter Scott memorial skeleton clock
Sir Walter Scott was a famed Scottish author and upon his death the citizens of Edinburgh decided the city needed a monument to him, the monument was opened in 1844 and is the inspiration for this impressive double fusee brass skeleton clock produced shortly afterwards. The clock stands on a substantial two piece stepped variegated white marble base with matching bun feet. Sir Walter Scott and his dog Maida are beautifully cast and sit below the central arch.
A finely finished four-piece brass frame with five pillars houses a quality chain driven fusee movement with six spoke wheels and pull repeat. It has a zinc bob pendulum on a wood rod and strikes the hours on a coiled gong. The newly re-silvered and pierced chapter ring has shield shaped roman numerals providing a pleasing contrast to the brass clock frame.
A beautiful and unusual timepiece.
