Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
The eight day movement, which strikes the hours on a single bell, has a verge escapement, short bob pendulum and pull quarter repeatwork on three bells. There are two subsidiary dials at the top of the elaborately engraved rectangular dial for strike/not strike and rise and fall, a design much favoured by Thomas Tompion. The maker’s signature is centred between the two subsidiary dials.
The dial has two winged cherub head corner spandrels and a chapter ring with unusual flower half-hour markers. The date indicator is inset above 6 o’clock and there is a crescent shaped aperture for the false pendulum within the finely matted dial centre.
The elaborate back plate is engraved with beautiful flower and foliate scrolls and a well-executed wheatear border. The maker's name is set within a cartouche just below the centre and there is an elaborate apron to cover the backcock.
The elegant case is constructed primarily in oak and veneered with ebony. It has a shallow domed top with a knopped brass carrying handle. The ebony case has a very distinctive bolection moulded front door which we had on another clock by Charles Goode.
