A fine, mahogany tavern clock by this well-known London partnership.

The case, of classic tavern clock style, has access doors to the movement on both sides of the trunk and a pendulum access door in the inverted base. The veneer to the front has a fine flame figure which is carried down from below the dial to the inward sloping foot.

The white dial, turned from a single piece of mahogany and with a narrow, crisply shaped moulded edge, is signed by the maker on the very finely crazed ground above and below the centre. The chapter ring has Roman hour numerals, double minutes circle and outside five minutes marks. The original brass hands have elongated heart tips, the minute with counterpoise tail.

The 8 day timepiece movement has substantial shouldered plates and a four wheel train with anchor escapement. It has a steel rod pendulum with brass faced bob and a rectangular lead weight.

Height: 45 in (114.5 cm)
Dial: 21 ¾ in (55 cm)

* Handley & Moore were apprenticed to the well known Jno Thwaites and were at 39 Clerkenwell Close from 1801 - 1820. The partnership continued until the death of G. Handley in 1824. An example of their work is in the British Museum. Their bracket clocks are well known and we have seen some fine and frequently very large dial clocks but this is only the second tavern clock by this famous partnership which we have handled in over 35 years.
