Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
The case, of the classic style found in lacquered bracket clocks, has a centre carrying handle, four pineapple finials, double side windows and delicately scrolled apron to front, back and sides. The front door has engraved and pierced brass corner frets. The decoration of flowers, oriental figures and tracery is finely executed. The raised work on the bell top is particularly good.
The arched brass dial with well cast spandrels and pierced, blued steel hands is signed above and below the centre. Note the central disc for setting the alarm, a rare feature on any bracket clock. The five pillar verge movement strikes the hours on a bell on which the alarm also sounds and there is a Strike/Silent mechanism within the arch.
