Mantel Clocks For Sale

If you're interested in buying any of the clocks featured here, please contact me.

While I am happy to post clocks to you, I personally believe it is always better to see them 'in the flesh' before buying and then you can take them with you, avoiding the potential for damage!

If you do not see what you want here please ask, as I have a selection of clocks still awaiting restoration - one of which might be just what you are looking for!

All clocks I sell have been fully overhauled by me personally and are fully guaranteed for one year.

Alabaster mantel clock


This is a particularly nice example, and is alabaster not white marble. As you will see, the case is surmounted by a 'dish' with a gilt metal rim & 'handles' - though it can not be removed!

The movement has a half-hour count-plate strike (on a bell) and a Brocot regulator on the suspension, the back plate has the Japy Freres Gde Med D Honneur round stamp (used from 1855 to 1873) and the numbers on the pendulum match those on the movement.

The case is in good original condition with very few scratches to the alabaster, though the bottom right corner shows some damage. In addition to this the dial has a hairline crack from 1.00 down to 7.00 and some chipping round the winding holes.

Maximum dimensions: 315mm high by 260mm wide by 128mm deep

Alabaster mantel clock


This clock is a timepiece, with Brocot regulation, unsigned & with only the pendulum length number on the back plate. It is in an alabaster case with nymphs playing musical instruments in recesses either side of the trunk.

The case has been in the wars, with both the front right corner of the top slab and the front left corner of the slab below the trunk having been damaged as well as both ends of the front slab of the base. Also the pendulum is a modern replacement.I have tried to reflect this in the asking price.

Despite this it is still an attractive clock and a good time-keeper.

Maximum dimensions: 270mm high by 248mm wide by 120mm deep

It is a 1/2-hour rack strike on gong model, which is numbered but unsigned.

The case is a 1930's 'Art Deco' ply one in good original condition.

The inner part of the dial does have a small hole in it inside by the III, but is otherwise in good condition.

German Striking Mantel Clock


This clock is in a typical Edwardian case with (I think) ebony & boxwood "cord" inlay below the dial and round a burr-walnut panel below this, & boxwood stringing round the outer edge of the (dark birch?) ply case - a very pleasing combination.

It has a good clear dial (silvered with the black-work applied on top), and the movement is a rack strike on gong one.

As you will see from the photos, the case is in very good condition (the last photo shows numbers a previous repairer has scratched into the inside of the door - the only obvious blemish to the finish).

Maximum dimensions: 235mm high by 300mm wide by 140mm deep

This clock is really quite impressive!

It is, as you will see, a fairly rococo-style case, with a ceramic dial, panel in the base and half of the urn on top.

It has ben re-gilded and is bright as a new pin!

It has a count-plate 1/2-hour strike movement (striking on a bell) and the original pendulum with numbers matching those on the movement.

Maximum dimensions: 300mm high by 170mm wide by 110mm deep

Jaeger-LeCoultre 8-day Folding Bedside Clock, Retailed by Asprey


I am offering a (Jaeger) LeCoultre '8-Day' travel clock retailed by ASPREY, dual signed dial.
This clock was bought for my mother as part of her 21st birthday present in 1945. As a result of much use over this time some of the leather covering of the folding case is wearing, but the movement is working well for the full 8-day winding period.
The only other problem I know of is that some of the luminous material from the hands is missing.
This is simply an amazing time machine - nothing more, nothing less!

These are excellent quality movements by a very well-regarded maker and should give a lifetime of service if looked after.
Items of quality do not come much better than this clock which sits well inside its self-contained shell housing....opening up to stand proud when in use.

Dimensions: Dial - 45mm x 38mm, case closed 80mm x 55mm x 14mm

There is also slight damage to the left end of the moulding round the top of the front of the case.

As you can see from the photos, it has a captive winding key and hand-set knob, so no keys to loose!

The dial (also pentangular) is printed with '8 Day' and 'Made in England'. Due to the shape, the minute hand does not get anywhere near some of the numbers on the dial! It has a typical Smith's movement with an ABEC platform escapement, and a convex front glass.

The widest part of the dial is 6.7", and the widest part of the minute tramline is 5.2", with the arabic hour numerals outside this.

Quartz insertion movement in china case


I don't often have anything to do with quartz technology, but this is a very nice china case, handpainted by Audrey whitfield & dated 16/2/2000. Unfortunately the movement is slightly loose in the case, and is held in place by blutack! It does, of course, keep excellent time...

Dimensions: Height - 75mm, Width - 58mm, Depth - 39mm
