A stunning quality English 8-day striking fusee four glass bracket clock in an exceptional rosewood case. The substantial twin fusee movement with anchor escapement strikes the hours on a bell.

The impressive rosewood case with glazed doors to the front, back, and glazed panels to both sides. Victorian clock making at its very best.

They changed their name to Barraud & Lunds in 1838 when John Richard Lund became a partner, and the company finally closed in 1929. During their time, they were celebrated makers for their high-quality chronometers, pocket watches and clocks.
