Origin

Date
circa 1800 - 1810

A fine English late George III period striking table clock of rare small size. The classic  arched top case with a single pad is veneered in patinated ebonised pearwood and has brass mouldings. It stands on four brass ogee bracket feet and has a finely cast and chased carrying handle.

The 4 ¾ inch arched silvered brass dial has a chapter ring with Roman hour numerals and a subsidiary strike/silent in the arch. The blued steel Barwise style hands are very fine and appear to be original.

The double fusee 8-day duration movement has an original anchor  escapement and hour strike and repeat on a bell. The substantial back plate fills almost the entire case, a sure sign of quality workmanship.

Date: circa 1800- 1810

Height: 10 ¾ in (27.5 cm)

Width: 7 in (18 cm)

Depth: 4 ¾ in (12 cm)

* John Barwise is one of the best known makers of the early 19th century. He was active in London between 1790 and his death in 1842. There is a regulator by him in St James’s Palace.

This beautiful little clock is in pristine condition  and is highly collectable.
