"Yearsley" of Harrow 12" Fusee Dial Clock

A Victorian mahogany dial clock made mid to late 1800’s.  The clock case is particularly well proportioned with a narrow wooden surround framing the 12″ dial and brass bezel. The case also features lower and side access doors typical of fusee Dial clocks. The lower section of the case and door are veneered with figured mahogany.  The clock is signed W.S. Yearsley of Greenhill, Harrow.  This is believed to be the makers name as would be typical of this period and quality of clock.  However I have yet to confirm this maker in historical records. On the back of the dial there is period hand-written painting “W S Yearsley”, which would have been the dial painters original instruction. The quality fusee movement is fully restored and bushed throughout.
