J. & A. Jump – 1a Old Bond Street, London
A high quality mid Victorian antique Wall Clock by this famous Clockmaking family.
The 8 day duration single fusee movement has an anchor escapement and is fronted by a 12" round flat white dial with Roman numerals, blued steel hands and signed by the makers Joseph & Alfred Jump, London. The light coloured mahogany case has access doors to the base and the side of the case, the bottom door with a lock. The cast brass bezel has a flat bevelled glass, a silvered brass sight ring and a lock to the side.
Note: The rear of the dial of this clock has an unusual amount of old repair marks, the earliest being 1871. Joseph Jump was apprenticed to the famous maker Benjamin Lewis Vulliamy in 1827. During the 1850’s when Vulliamy died, Joseph and his brother Alfred continued the business. He later joined forces with Henry Jump and they continued together until 1899 when Henry died. During their time together they worked at 55 Pall Mall and 11 Old Bond Street. In the early 20th century the Jump family were Clockmakers to the King.
