A majestic mid-C19th walnut Vienna regulator with month-going sonnerie movement.
The rectangular case with a moulded stepped pediment has well-figured burr walnut veneers, quarter paneled veneers to the back, and is set with a highly-figured amboyna panel above the dial.

The original painted 10-inch dial, with Roman numerals and subsidiary seconds below XII, is signed John Bennett, 65 & 64 Cheapside London.
The very high quality three train weight driven movement has an anchor escapement striking on three bells, two on the quarters and the third on the hour. The elegantly-designed steel strike-work is finely cut, the fine dead beat pallets encompassing 11 teeth, and using wheels with five spoke crossings. The movement front-plate is signed A. LORENZY, WIEN.
Substantial wood rod pendulum with a 10-inch brass boss and three brass weights suspended from pulleys with five crossings.
