001 early english chamber clock by william selwood at the mermaid, Louthborough, london. c1635

A historically and Horologically important clock Circa 1635.

The striking movement that originally had a balance wheel was converted to a short verge escapement about 1660.

With the exception of the top finial, escapement, side doors, rope and weights it is probably all original. It contains massive amounts of wear to some pinions and has been carefully cleaned without removing colour or aging, pivots polished, original sprockets  carefully reconstructed and rebushed throughout to enable it to run reliably and without fault. It now sits on a later dark oak bracket and the hanging loop has a section missing.

It has a 6 1/8" diameter chapter ring and the dimensions are 14" high x 5 3/4" wide x 5 3/4" deep.

The maker was William Selwood who's apprentices included Ireland and Knifton. His workshop was destroyed in the Great fire of London. The front fret is signed along the bottom edge "William Selwood at the Mearmaid Louthborough fecit"
