A fine English regulator by John Roger Arnold and E.J. Dent, two highly esteemed clockmakers who were in partnership for a period of 10 years.

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.
To be overhauled and guaranteed for 3 years.
