The break arch brass dial has a finely matted centre with a false pendulum aperture and crown and sceptre corner spandrels. In the arch, there is a subsidiary calendar dial set within a finely engraved foliate border, a typical Daniel Quare feature.
The fully restored eight day movement has a verge escapement and quarter repeating mechanism on six bells. The hours are sounded on a separate bell. The back plate is exquisitely engraved with scrolling foliage and the maker’s signature Dan. Quare London is set within a polished recess.

* Daniel Quare’s spring table clocks were of consistently high quality and were more than a match to those of his rivals. He had a highly successful business with a loyal following amongst the aristocracy in England and demand for his clocks from the continent. Today they can be found in the best private and public collections around the world.
