DWERRIHOUSE, CARTER & SON. A good late George III period bracket clock by this well-known partnership.

Origin
Berkeley Square, London
Date
circa 1810

A good late George III period bracket clock by this well-known partnership, the well-proportioned brass moulded mahogany case with a gilt brass carrying handle and standing on four brass ogee bracket feet.

The arched brass dial has a solid centre, with Roman numerals and double minutes circle, typical of the period. The finely tapered blued steel hands have spade shaped tips. It also has two subsidiary dials for strike/silent and rise/fall in the arch and there is flower and foliate engraving between the dials in place of more usual spandrels.

The twin fusee, 8-day duration movement with original anchor escapement sounds the hours on a bell and has pull-hour repeat work. The shaped backplate is engraved with the maker’s signature Dwerrihouse, Carter & Son, London and it has a large spring suspended pendulum with hold fast.

Height: 15 in (38 cm) excluding handle

Width: 10 in (25.5 cm)

Depth: 7 in (17.75 cm)

 *Dwerrihouse, Carter & Son are recorded on page 235 of Brian Loomes’ Watchmakers and Clockmakers of the World: 21st Century Edition. The partnership worked between circa 1808 and 1815.
