Item Description / Dealer Expertise

D320. Nathaniel Seddon at St James, circa 1700. A good ebony veneered spring clock with verge escapement and pull-quarter repeat on three bells.

The case, which is surmounted by a carrying handle and four ball finials, has glazed sides with silk backed frets above. There is also a sound fret to the top of the front door. The clock rests on brass bun feet.

The dial, some 7" square, has cherub spandrels and there is strike/silent regulation above
12 o’clock. Gilded cherub spandrels are employed and the chapter ring has roman numerals for the hours with half hour marks and outer arabics for the minutes.

The matted dial centre has an aperture for the mock bob with engraving around and behind it
is Seddon’s signature. Above 6 is the date aperture surrounded by engraving depicting two birds eating fruit.

The very finely and delicately engraved back-plate has an oval plaque in the lower half bearing the makers signature, which is supported by cherubs on either side. The engraving also features butterflies and a cornucopia of flowers.The back-cock cover is also finely engraved. The movement is held in place by two turn-buckles to the back of the dial and bottom bolts. £20,000

Height with/without handle. 15.5"/ 13.25" (39.5/ 33.5cms.)
