Arnold & Dent bell-striking Regulator Longcase
c. 1835 London
Offered by Carlton Clocks Ltd.
Ten regulators are known to have been produced by Arnold & Dent, of which four were un-numbered. This one bears their name on the dial alone. Derek Roberts records this very clock in great detail in his book English Precision Pendulum Clocks (p 50-51,Figs 13-8A-F).
The high quality eight day movement features a Graham-type deadbeat escapement and maintaining power, and strikes the hours on a bell. The plates have canted corners, the turned pillars riveted to the backplate and pinned to the front.
The 11 inch silvered dial is signed ARNOLD & DENT/ STRAND with a subsidiary seconds ring below the XII and a strike / silent lever above.
The innovational pendulum has a steel jar containing mercury. Dent delivered a paper about this design in 1838, which this regulator pre-dates.
