Rare miniature, eight day duration bracket clock with a silvered dial by Abel Panchaud, London. Circa 1780.

A beautiful little table clock in fine condition and by a good maker.

Stock No:   14385

The eight day duration (this is a rare feature), fusee timepiece movement with five baluster pillars and 'rise and fall', rack operated regulation. Also having tall and shouldered plates. The movement has been converted to Anchor Recoil escapement that has been carried out extremely skilfully.

Behind a tiny, 3 3/4" wide, break-arch silvered dial with the regulation dial in the arch that conforms in style to the main chapter which has outer, Arabic five minute numerals, a sectored minute ring, inner, Roman hour numerals and the maker's name "Abel Panchaud, London" above and below the centre. The matching blued steel hands are pierced and have diamond design ends.

Contained in a small break-arch, ebonised fruitwood veneered oak case. The plain top has a cast brass swinging handle and all-round, returned moulding. Both of the full-size glazed doors have locks and the front door has quadrant brass moulding that frames the glass. The case sides have arched top glazed apertures and the short plinth has a top moulding and sits upon four brass ball feet.

* This clock is simply beautiful, it is very small and is eight day duration - usually, clocks of this size and type have to be wound on a daily basis. Abel Panchaud is recorded as working before 1764 until 1784. He worked at the Dial, in Oxford Street, facing North Audley Street, London.

Dimensions:                       10 1/2" high including the handle x 6" wide x 4 1/4" deep.

Circa:                                  1780.

Condition:                            Excellent throughout, working perfectly and keeping time though awaiting
                                            movement service. The escapement has been converted from Verge to Anchor
                                            Recoil but can be re-converted for a further cost.

Price:                                   £5,250 when serviced.
