A very fine and large mid nineteenth-century Gothic Revival bracket clock in richly figured walnut, with a silvered dial.
The clock has a good quality English eight day, twin fusee, four pillar movement with anchor escapement, which strikes the hours on a single gong.
The profusely engraved silvered arched dial with Roman numerals has two subsidiary dials, namely; strike or silent and slow or fast. The chapter ring, signed by the London jewellers Halton & Slocombe, 63 Moorgate St, London, (probably the retailer rather than the maker) is framed by finely engraved spandrels.
The walnut case which retains its original colour and polish, is the perfect embodiment of the Gothic Revival. The case is topped with carved finials and supported by a pair or columns with acanthus leaf capitals, all set upon a heavily moulded plinth on carved bun feet, whilst the dial is framed by a simple arched glazed door.
English, circa 1815.
Note, the original silvering on the dial has in the past suffered some scratching from the hour had. The dial can be re-silvered if desired, at no extra cost.
