An Early Victorian Oak Bracket Clock


An early Victorian bracket clock in an oak case.

An early Victorian bracket clock in an oak case, with a crested serpentine top carved with fruit and foliage around a small cartouche and on a plinth base with further carved fruit, over a glazed cast brass bezel to a cream painted dial with Roman numerals in black with an outer minute track and with black steel club hands, the sides of the clock with bevelled glazed panels and the back with a bevelled glass door to the eight day twin fusee movement striking the hours on a bell. English, circa 1840.

Condition: Overall very good, the case is in excellent condition with good colour and grain to the timber, and no losses to the carving. The dial has some crazing to the paint but without losses and this has been stabilised. The movement has been fully serviced and overhauled and is in full working condition. Keys and pendulum supplied.
