D414. A fine quality English carriage clock by S.Wilde. This clock probably has most attractive dial we have seen on one of these clocks, the four corners being beautifully decorated with very fine scroll engraving whereas the inside of the chapter ring is smothered with excellently designed and executed floral work. The chapter ring, which is also gilded, employs roman numerals and the bezel surrounding the dial is gilded. The sides, top and back of the case are glazed.

The single train chain fusee movement, which completely fills the case, employs a lever escapement with compensated balance. The back-plate is boldly signed S. Wilde, 8 Barford
Street, Islington, No 1862, which gives some idea of the pride he took in his new creation.

The carrying handle is virtually the same as those used by Dent on several of his carriage clocks, which makes one wonder if Wilde supplied Dent with some of his carriage clocks.
