The well-proportioned case has cross grain mouldings throughout and walnut panelled sides. The trunk door and matching base panel have beautifully executed marquetry panels , each depicting flowers inhabited by birds and figurines with outstretched arms.
The flat-top hood with overhanging cornice is flanked by gilt capped barley twist columns.
The 11in square dial is surrounded by cherub and foliate spandrels and there is a silvered chapter ring with individually numbered minutes. The dial is signed ‘Carolus Cabrier Londini fecit.’
The five-pillar movement is of 8-day duration and has an inside-countwheel for the hour strike on a bell.
His son Charles (II), who was free of the Clockmakers’ in 1726, was active in the Clockmakers’ Company and became Master in 1759. He seems to have worked near to the Royal Exchange. He continued to make fine clocks into the 1770s, and died in 1776, leaving a substantial estate to his surviving children Charles (III), also probably a clockmaker, and daughter Rebecca.
