Wright Kennington c.1850

A good early Victorian wall timepiece, the 12" diameter flat dial signed 'Wright, Kennington', the fusee movement with shouldered plates fronted by matching steel 'trefoil' hands, in a mahogany case with a cast brass bezel.

Stock No. 3296

This clock dates from the time before the wholesale manufacture of fusee dial clocks for the Victorian workplace. The movement with its elegant shoulders recalls movements of  several decades earlier, and although the dial is flat, it continues with the traditional convex glass.

There are many makers listed with this surname, and although there are those working south of the river Thames in London, it is not possible to identify one in particular.
