An elegant Queen Anne period quarter repeating bracket clock by this celebrated Royal
clockmaker. The ebony veneered break arch case has gilt brass mounts to all four sides of the caddy top and a substantial brass carrying handle. It has matching brass door escutcheons and stands on four gadrooned gilt brass feet.

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.

Height: 16 in (40.5 cm)

* 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.
