The eight day movement is also signed on the back plate and engraved with a decorated boarder. The movement is fitted with strike repeat facility operated via a pull cord under the case. The strike silent lever is behind an engraved plate above the 12 o’clock, which is partially hidden by the cast brass bezel. The bezel can be locked by means of the key on the left of the case. The movement has chain driven fusees and still retains its original lacquer.
The 7” painted dial has a wonderful craquelure finish and matching steel hands.
The mahogany case is inspired by early English gothic architecture with its lancet shaped case and lancet side apertures with pierced brass frets which are backed with silk to allow the sound of the bell which strikes the hours to travel. The inlay on the front continues the gothic styling with detail such as the pewter cinquefoils. The padauk quatrefoil in the uppermost arch is inlayed into burr yew.
Although gothic revival is associated with Augustus Pugin and the Victorians, the style had been rekindled much earlier in the mid 18th century by Horace Walpole the “man of letters” when he built his villa Strawberry Hill on the banks of the Thames at Twickenham. Walpole rejected the classicism prevalent in architecture at the time and incorporated fluted vaulting, tracery, medieval tombs and rose windows into what was literally the house of his dreams and the inspiration for the first gothic novel, “The Castle of Otranto”.
