A fine George III period mahogany domestic regulator of rare small size.

The refined case with shallow arch design based on those used by Thomas Mudge, is veneered with mahogany of fine colour and patination. Standing on block feet, there is a double plinth to the moulded panelled base. The long door has a shallow arch top similar to the hood which has reeded canted corners and is surmounted by a single mount and brass ball finial.

The 10 inch brass dial has a silvered finish and is laid out in the traditional style with two blued steel pointers and a subsidiary seconds dial below XII. The maker’s scrolling signature Bartholemew Devis, LONDON is set within the shallow arch.

The 8-day duration movement has a deadbeat escapement with bolt and shutter maintaining power. The high quality pendulum is of flat steel design with a large brass bob and numbered engraved brass rating nut below.
