The Clockguy web site has them still in business as late as 1969. But I could find no other information either on the web or any of the references I have.
The site does mention that that the made high end clocks and "in 1865 James Jones Elliott of 156 Cheapside in the City of London, was apprenticed to "Bateman" of 82 St John Street, Smithfield, London., to learn the art of clock making".
Hmmmm... in that case are there any Elliott experts out there? I have a turn of the century, art nouveau long case clock that I am fairly certain houses an Elliott movement. The movement is a quality made westminster, chiming on tuned coiled gongs and striking on a larger gong. There are no markings whatsoever on the movement. However, it looks very similar to other Elliott movements I have been able to locate on the web. Most of these are tubular chiming units. The coiled gong style seems to be very difficult to find info/pictures on. Did Elliot make unsigned movements for the general trade at any point? I can post photos of the clock and/or movement. Let me know if that would be helpful.
Attached are a couple of pics of the movement. I know that there were german and english-made movements that look quite similar. The pendulum rod on my clock is polished steel, with a slot for the crutch to ride in. To my knowledge Elliott was the only manufacturer to use a steel slotted pendulum rod. Any thoughts?
Are the chime and strike silencers at the 3 and 9 o'clock positions on the dial, or are they in subsidiary dials? I seen one gong chiming longcase in the past with silencers at 3 and 9, and I think it was an Elliott. A picture of the dial might be helpful.
Now we can see the entire case. I'll admit the case doesn't look like what Elliott usually built.
While I wouldn't leave Elliott out of consideration, I am wondering if it may be a German clock, built by the likes of Winterhalder/HAWINA. If only someone on here had guides to what mechanism types the companies built.
