Clock of the Month February – James McCabe Library Clock.

This month there is really no contest for clock of the month, it just has to be this superb example of a small library clock by the master of this type of clock James McCabe.

The elegant Mahogany case is discretely brass lined and features really nice touches such as the scrolled columns and sprung door.  The case is numbered with the matching movement and dial numbers.

The movement is superb quality and really does resemble a chronometer set out as a mantle clock.  The platform is a large English type exhibition platform, gilded and with underslung lever escapement.  The balance is plain flat and is also gilded.

The engraving on the exquisite silvered dial really is top notch.

The perfect addition to any desk this little clock really is not one to be missed.
