A nice example of an English-cased Edwardian lancet-topped bracket clock made by Harris & Harrington of London. The mahogany case is beautifully inlaid in acanthus and tendril design and it has restrained brass trim at the finials, feet, capitals and side chime grills. Interestingly, there are several brass fins protruding from the lower fluting of the front columns which possibly contribute to resonating the sound produced by the chime. The silver dial is marked faintly "Grogan & Co., Pittsburgh" on the dial (the retail jewelry store that originally sold it, and "H. & H. Grogan was the Pennsylvania equivalent of Tiffany. The movement is marked "Made In France". H & H actually made the cases in England, installed high-quality French or German movements and then sold them locally and to select retailers in the states.
This clock features a 8 day movement and strikes a coil gong at the hour and half-past. It has been recently cleaned and adjusted and keeps excellent time.
Authentic antique bracket clocks of this size and quality are scarce and always expensive. Measurements are: 15-1/2" tall, 12" wide and 8-3/4" deep.
