Antique bracket clocks from the second part of the 18th Century are particularly rare items and are generally the domain of the finest English makers .

The clock strikes from one to six as normal but at 7o'clock the sequence starts again at one and carries on until 12 o'clock where it strikes 6 times. The alarm facility is complete and is wound at just past one o'clock with the setting disc in the centre.
