Description
A fine George II period ebonised inverted bell top bracket clock. The case of good proportions and with crisp mouldings to the top has a well-cast central carrying handle, arched side windows and brass block feet with engraved brass sound frets to the front and back doors.

The 6 inch arched brass dial with delicately matted centres is signed Jason Cox, Long Acre London on a raised silvered plaque within the dial centre and there is a subsidiary dial in the arch for Rise/Fall. The blued steel hands are of fine quality and there is an inset date aperture above VI o’clock.

The 8-day duration movement with large plates has a spring suspended verge escapement, hour strike on a bell with pull-repeat and Rise/Fall. The backplate is finely engraved with scrolling leaves and the back cock and pendulum hold fast are engraved with herringbone.

The clock comes with its original period ebonised oak wall bracket with key drawer, a rare feature.

Height including wall bracket: 23 ⅝ in (60 cm)
Width: 9 ⅜ in (23.75 cm)
