Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
Unusually, the movement which has pull-quarter repeat, is held in place by two blued steel brackets. The backplate is particularly well engraved and is signed within a cartouche, Wm. Martin, Bristol. Below and above this is fine floral engraving.
The things which are so impressive about this clock are it's fine quality, originality and the remarkable state of conservation; it even has, what is certainly it's original winding key and the beautifully executed blued steel hands.
The 7.5" square dial has cherub spandrels to the four corners and to the centre at the top is the strike/silent regulation. There is a curved aperture below 12 o'clock for the mock bob, behind which is the signature of the maker. The winding holes are ringed and to the bottom of the dial is the date aperture surrounded by engraving. The silvered chapter ring shows Arabic minute and Roman hour numerals.
The originality of this clock is most impressive and it is to be hoped that this will be preserved for many years to come.
