A fine and rare George III period regulator longcase, the beautiful flame veneered mahogany case with full length trunk door and hood with ogee moulded top and reeded stop chamfers to each side.

The 10 inch square ogee dial is of the conventional regulator type with separate dials for hours, minutes and seconds and the maker’s name engraved in the ogee arch. It retains its original blued steel pointers.

The superb 8-day movement has five boldly turned pillars, dead beat escapement, maintaining power and a large brass pendulum bob with a wooden rod and engraved rating ball. There is also a silvered and engraved beat scale and the clock retains its original five spoke pulley and brass cased weight. The pendulum is suspended from a massive brass back-cock.

Height: 77 inch (196 cm)

John Walter Brooke is listed in Brittens’ Old Clocks and Watches and Their Makers and was active in the last quarter of the 18th century.
