English Regulator clocks are world renowned for their astonishing quality and are sought after by collectors looking for the ultimate in mechanical time keeping and were used in their day were used by jewelers and clockmakers to regulate their clocks right up to use by Harbour Masters to regulate ships Chronometers . Greenwhich Observatory used the very finest instruments for GMT.
Almost always regulators are timepieces which a regulator dial layout being used and it is very unusual indeed to find a striking example so to find this very complicated example is a unique opportunity.
Indeed , this exact clock is illustrated and described in the book "Victorian Clocks" by Richard Goode page 119 (see images).
The 13 inch silvered brass and engraved dial has central sweep seconds with hour dial at 9 o'clock and the minute dial at 3. At the top of the dial the month,day and ages and phase of the moon are illustrated.Above 6 O'clock is the date dial and either side of that is the maker Thomas Morgan . Loomes records T Morgan as a 19th Century clockmaker working in Manchester.
The massive arched shaped 8 day duration movement has dead beat escapement and maintaining power. It strikes the hours on a huge bell and a further hammer on the opposite side of the movement strikes the half hour by passing strike.
Everything is beautifully built as would be expected but the under dial work is brilliantly done and very complicated. The photographs should show the construction of the movement which is pictured prior to being professionally restored.It is fitted to the case by its original seat board
The massive lead filled brass bob is very heavy indeed and has a numbered rating nut with pointer.The wood rod has micro adjustment for the crutch.
The weights are also brass cased and are suspended by their original pulleys.
I find the walnut veneered case particularly pleasing being only 6 ft 8 inches tall and being glazed at the sides with two inspection doors in the top being made of framed curved glass.
The front glass is also original and retains the beautiful fine carved walnut fret. The front door is hung on three large brass hinges and is held by two locks.
The burr and figured walnut veneer has developed a wonderful colour and retains its original finish
This clock is totally genuine and original and I offer a money back guarantee to this end.
The condition is truly excellent with only an old shrinkage crack in the base panel worth comment
