George III hooded wall clock in it's original stained pine case. Circa 1760.

A charming clock with a very welcoming appearance.

Stock No:   14372

A George III period, stained pine, hooded wall alarm timepiece. The unsigned, late 18th century, thirty hour duration, four pillar weight driven movement with Anchor Recoil escapement regulated by seconds pendulum. Also having an alarm mechanism set between the plates next to the going train incorporating a verge crown-wheel and vertically pivoted hammer, sounding on a bell mounted above.

The 7 inch square brass dial with central rose engraved alarm disc and single scroll pierced hour hand to centre, within applied Roman numeral chapter ring with dot half hour markers and rococo scroll cast spandrels to angles.

The case with moulded cornice and plain frieze over hinged glazed dial aperture flanked by free-standing columns, the right hand side with lancet-shaped door and both sides with shaped bargeboards at the rear, the throat with complex mouldings over twin stepped-ogee outline integral side supports with inverted break-arch pendant backboard between.

* This wall clock is absolutely charming and has a substantial slow tick. I have not prepared the dial because it may be preferred to leave it in its dull and worn condition.

Dimensions:                   23" high x 13 1/4" wide x 8 1/2" deep.

Circa:                             1760.

Condition:                       All original and in working condition but the movement would benefit from a
                                       complete overhaul and the chain jumps occasionally. The case is in good order and
                                       sound and the dial is unrestored.

Price:                              £2,400 in its present condition, cost of any work required by the buyer can be
                                       advised upon application.
