A superb George III figured mahogany triple fusee bracket clock by John Taylor, London. The bell top with gilt brass mounted detachable column crest, with central pineapple finial, four further corner finials and with applied beaded swag border.
Below gilt brass caryatid corner mounts and sound frets, each cast with a sunburst and mask, the seven and a half inch break arch dial with floral and foliate scroll borders, Roman and Arabic chapter ring with strike/silent subsidiary dial to arch, the matted centre with calendar aperture, alarm setting dial and recessed signed cartouche.
The six pillar triple fusee movement with flower basket engraved back plate, original verge escapement, chiming on a nest of eight bells and striking and alarm signalling on a further bell.

John Taylor is listed in Baileys Clock Makers of the World as working in Gloucester Street and as a maker of bracket clocks of fine quality. The alarm giving this clock effectively giving a fourth train, notably a very rare clock with the inclusion of both quarter striking and alarm mechanisms.
Excellent. The movement has been fully overhauled, alarm mechanism re-instated. Minor restorations to case.
Private collection London.
