British Skeleton Clocks.

Whereas the earliest skeleton clocks were produced in France and Austria, far more were made in England, in a great diversity of forms, from c.1830 to the end of the century. These varied from simple timepieces through to complex chiming and musical clocks and those incorporating unusual escapements or gearing such as McDowell’s clock with helical gearing or Parker and Pace’s clocks which favoured epicylic, some of which were of year duration.
