London
Date
circa 1762 - 1780

A small and fine George III ebonised bell top bracket clock standing on brass  moulded block feet and having four urn finials and a single facetted brass carrying handle to the bell top.

The five inch arched brass dial is mounted with a silvered chapter ring and subsidiary rings in the arch flanking a cartouche signed by the maker. Subsidiary rings are for Strike/Silent and rise and fall regulation. The centre is finely matted with a false pendulum aperture and an aperture to view the day of the month above VI.

The twin fusee movement has a spring suspended verge escapement and hour strike sounded on a bell with pull repeat on 6 bells. The back plate is exquisitely engraved with flowers and foliage.

Height: 13 ½ in (34 cm) excluding handle

Width: 8 ⅝ in (21.75 cm) incl. feet

Depth: 6 ¾ in (17 cm) incl. feet

* Henry Long  is listed on page 491 of Brian Loomes’s Clockmakers of the World: 21st Century Edition as  working  in Little Britain  in London from 1762 until 1780.

Small table clocks of this quality are increasingly rare and hard to find.
