English, Regency Bracket Clock
English, Regency, circa 1820, Mahogany, Double Fusee, [chains in excellent order], pull repeat, Bracket Clock. Un-marked but probably by Richard Webster 26 Change Alley, London, 1784-1840, Livery Clockmakers Co [see F S Britten] The well figured Mahogany Chamfer top case with cast brass pineapple finial, brass stringing, Arabic pierced brass frets and brass carry rings over stylised flower parterre to sides, rear door glazed, on brass ball feet. The convex dial painted [possibly repainted & thus explaining the “no name”] with Roman numerals. The double fusee [with chains] movement has massive, shaped plates; the pendulum with transit knob for securing it for and during moving the clock; pull repeat for the hours striking on a bell; with lovely, hand cut, moon poise and cross, steel hands behind original convex glass in cast brass bezel; the original lock somewhat “as found” as is some of the brass stringing. A nice old clock in excellent working order.
