WF Turk Fine Antique Clocks

A stunning, double fusee, English giant carriage clock.
The high quality movement with free sprung helical hairspring and compensated balance.
The profusely engraved case with original gilding standing on delicately chased rococo style feet. The re- gilded dial with recessed seconds signed William Chambers, 18 Powell Street East, King Square, London

F.J. Britten records Chambers as a watch finisher in 1830 at City Road, and afterwards in partnership with Edward Prior at 18 powell Street.
Loomes records him 1851 - 63 and sons`s 69 - 75.

This information confirms our opinion that this clock would have been made 1850 - 60.
Chronometer Makers of the World record him as a “Maker”, finisher & springer, which would account for the splendid quality of this clock
