    Auction house here in Adelaide had their first sale today. Managed to pick up this English fusee clock. She’s 48cm tall x 40cm wide x 17cm deep. Huge bracket clock. Dial is larger than our long case dial. Hubbies hand in back of clock may give indication of size!

    I would call an over sized twin fusee movement, a "comfort clock". :thumb:

    Very nice, hope you've got space for it! Looks like the case is rosewood, Joseph Jackson is listed in Gerard Street, Liverpool 1834.

    Thank you. Couldn't find much on Joseph Jackson. Every little bit helps. Auction place had case listed as Mahogany...pics do make it look darker than it actually is.

    On another note....or lack of one! Should this be striking on the 1/2 hour? It strikes OK on the hr but on the 1/2 hr you can hear it make the pre-strike noise but then nothing happens?

    A passing strike on the half hour is unusual but it does exist in English clocks. (I have two longcase that do it)

    I think French clocks usually do it by dropping one tooth on the rack but both of mine just have a pin on a wheel to lift the hammer so no warning.
