19th century mahogany table clock by Thwaites & Reed, London. Having a John Ellicott style round dial.

A charming yet simple in appearance, fusee bracket clock by a good maker.

Stock No:   14320

The eight day duration, double fusee, five knopped pillar movement with Anchor Recoil escapement, shouldered plates - the front of which bears the initials "TR" and is numbered 6949 and also, rack striking the hours on a bell with repeat facility.

Behind a 7 1/4" square, silvered brass dial with engraved Roman hour numerals, outer minute ring with divisions and hour diamond markings and the upper centre bearing the maker's name "Thwaites & Reed. LONDON". The door-inset, glazed cast brass bezel gives the impression that the dial is circular and 6 1/2" in diameter and this can be clearly seen on the photographs. The matching blued steel hands are 'open moon' style.

Contained in an extremely well-figured, bell-top mahogany case with swinging carrying handle above a well formed, returned moulding. The whole front is the hinged and locking door with brass edging and the rear is similar but fully square glazed with a good mahogany moulding. The sides have brass framed and glazed rectangular viewing apertures and the short, top moulded plinth sits upon four angular brass block feet. Finally, the strike repeat knob exits from within the base.

* The numbering of the movement suggests a year of manufacture as c.1823. It is typical of T & R movements which were made in large quantities and supplied to several other makers of clocks. This style of case and dial was first produced by John Ellicott in 1760 and became very popular. The figuring of the mahogany used to make this case and the quality is exceptional.

Dimensions:                                18 1/2" high including the handle x 10 1/2" wide x 7" deep.

Circa:                                           1823.

Condition:                                     Excellent.

Price:                                            £6,500.00.
