A miniature Regency rosewood and brass inlaid mantel clock. The arched silvered dial signed James Tupman, Gt Russell Street, Bloomsbury. Blued steel hands and strike/silent selector. Double fusee eight day movement striking the hours on a bell, with trip repeat. Signed on the backplate, with pendulum lock.

The Tupman family were in business in London from 1775 to 1824. Proceedings at the Old Bailey for 15th September 1825 (where he gave evidence following a theft from the shop) reveals that James Jeremiah Tupman kept a shop and house in the Parish of St George, Bloomsbury.

James Tupman is recorded at 44 Great Russell Street, Bloomsbury, London between 1816 and 1819; No.67 in 1820; No.31 in 1822-1842; No.31 in 1845 until 1856 as a watch & clock maker and jeweller. He was most likely the brother of George Tupman, watchmaker of Old Bond Street, with whom he worked closely.
