The dial of this clock is of simple elegant design with Indian Head and foliate corner spandrels and a matted centre with inset date aperture above VI. The chapter ring has bold Roman hour numerals, an outer minute circle with Arabic numerals at five minute intervals and inner quarter hour markings. The blued steel hands are finely wrought and pierced and the maker’s signature is engraved on a raised oval silvered brass plaque.
The well-made substantial movement has 5 finned pillars. The anchor escapement is controlled by a seconds-beating pendulum and the hour-striking mechanism has rack strike. The movement is complete with its period brass cased weights and pendulum bob.
Height: 85 in (221 cm)
Maximum depth: 10 ¼ in (26 cm)
* John Winkles is recorded on page 529 of Brian Loomes’s Clockmakers of Britain 1286-1700 as working in either Knightsbridge or St Martins-in-the-Field after 1716.
