This is one of a number of 18-19th Century long case clock dials and movements which are from the extensive collection that belonged to the late Eric Morton 1945 - 2019. I know very little about clocks and know little jargon relating to them. Any questions please ask and I will answer them as best I can.
All items are for spares - repair only and may have bits missing but I know that some NON clock collectors only want a dial to hang on a wall as a furnishing with their surname or a local place name etc. All are A/F = as found. This is an enamel dial and movement which is named William Buxton, Bishop Auckland that has been abbreviated to Wm Buxton, Bp Auckland. The iron back is also stamped with the name Wilkes, Birm.
It has been hand painted with nice little flowers and fruits in the corners with gilt detailing. It has also been painted with a scene showing a young boy in period clothing holding flowers with his dog by his side. This dial has really nice hand made hands. It has dummy winding holes at the front as well, these are painted on.The metal ware is rusted and tarnished which has effected the enamelling on the front, mostly on the edges and corners where the enamelling has chipped. The paintwork on the numbers and maker's name is faded. The enamelling is cracked in places and looks to be discoloured from age.
There are some surface scuffs etc. It needs a bit of a clean. Please see pictures provided for more details and visual confirmation of condition.19 and 3/4 inches x 13 inches and weighs approx. My stock ref : Unit 9. Scale is usually an English 1 penny coin which is 20mm in diameter which is just short of 7/8ths of an inch in diameter, or a universal Coke can, and we all know how big those are.
