A 19th century, break-arch bracket clock with a circular dial and mahogany case. Circa 1810.

A good looking and absolutely charming and untouched fusee table clock.

Stick No:   14377

The eight day duration, five knopped pillar, double fusee movement with Anchor Recoil escapement and rack and starwheel striking of the hours on a top-mounted bell. Also having shouldered plates, top micrometer regulation to the pendulum and a pendulum transit bracket and knob.

The seven inch diameter, bowed and painted dial has its original off-white background paint and a black inked minute track and Roman hour numerals. The steel 'spade' hands are beautifully blued and the dial sits behind a fixed 'Sheraton' style cast brass bezel with a snapped-in bowed glass.

The mahogany break-arch case being of excellent colour and patina has a cast brass, swinging carry handle mounted upon the single, brass-framed pad top. The top has a well-proportioned return moulding to all sides and the 'full opening', locking front door has quartered veneer that is strung with boxwood. The full-size locking rear door is glazed  and the sides have high, arched top, cast brass fishscale sound frets that are backed with red cloth. The short plinth has a conforming top moulding and sits upon four brass 'ball-and-plate' feet.

* Rarely is such an unspoiled and original example of this type of clock seen. The appearance can only be described as charming with a mellow colour and patina. The movement has been very well maintained and has no signs of historical poor work carried out on it.

Dimensions:                  15 1/2" high excluding the handle x 10 1/2" wide x 7" deep.

Circa:                             1810 (Regency period).

Condition:                       Excellent and original, well looked after throughout its life and the movement is
                                       working perfectly, keeping time and striking correctly however, it would benefit from
                                       an overhaul as it is dirty. Both original locks are present and working. Any work
                                       required can be discussed upon enquiry.

Price:                              £2,600 in present working condition.
