A superb round brass silvered dial mahogany case domestic regulator grandfather clock. The ‘8 day’ duration movement by Gravell & Tolkien. This together with dead-beat escapement, maintaining power and wood rod pendulum. The makers were successors to Eardley Norton. A very special clock and of superb colour and patination. Tolkien is reportedly the great Grandfather of the author J.R.R. Tolkien (The Hobbit , Lord of the rings etc ) Finally I would say a lovely clock that would suit any home.
