A good, Regency, English Drop-dial fusee wall clock by James Tupman, London. Circa 1820.

An attractive and original clock.

Stock No:   14430

The 8 day duration fusee timepiece movement with Anchor Recoil escapement, shaped pillars and shouldered plates.

Behind a 12" diameter, bowed painted iron dial with cream base paint, outer divided minute track, inner Roman hour numerals and the maker's signature of "JAMES TUPMAN" (of) "Great Russell Srt" (Street) to the upper portion and "BLOOMSBURY" (A fashionable part of the West end of London) to the lower portion. The blued steel matching 'open moon' hands are finely cut and the cast brass locking bezel has a bowed glass.

The fine mahogany case has a narrow moulded bezel surround and the short trunk has finely carved 'ears'. The backbox has a curved bottom with a curved and cockbeaded bottom door and the drop front is strung with boxwood and has a central brass star inset. There is also a side access door to the right.

* The maker is recorded at 44 Great Russell Street, Bloomsbury, London between 1816 and 1819; No.67 in 1820; No.31 in 1822-1842; No.31 in 1845 until 1856 as a watch & clock maker and jeweller. He was most likely the brother of George Tupman, watchmaker of Old Bond Street, with whom he worked closely. This is a good example of his work.
