A good William & Mary quarter repeating table clock, the ebony veneered case in a fine state with gilt ormolu mounts to the door, side windows and basket top.
The case stands on brass bun feet with corner finials and has a cast ormolu handle. The brass dial is mounted with cherub and foliate spandrels, a silvered chapter ring and blued steel pointers which are finely pierced and faceted. The centre to the dial is matted with ringed winding holes and an aperture to view the day of the month.
The eight day duration movement has twin fusee drive with restored pull quarter repeat mechanism on six bells, the hours sounded on a separate bell. There is a restored verge escapement and the backplate is engraved within a wheat ear border with tulips and acanthus leaves around the maker's signature.

Height: 13 in (34 cm)

* James Atfield is recorded as working in Brentford and is known to have been there in 1712.
This particular example would date from circa 1695.
