A fine Regency mahogany bracket clock with elegant gilt brass inlays and mounts. The case with a chamfer top is surmounted by a flambeau finial supported by four brass-inlaid ribs. The case stands on four brass ball feet and a brass lion’s mask carrying handle to each side.

The enamel dial is signed by the maker – PURVIS, North Audley St, Grosvenor Square – and set in an engine turned gilded surround. The blued steel hands are original and have pointed tips.

The good-quality 8-day double fusee movement strikes the hours on a bell. The finely engraved back plate is also signed by the maker and has an engraved outer border. Unusually, the pendulum bob is engraved and has an inverted rating screw.

Height: 14 ¾ in (37.5 cm) excluding finial
Width: 9 ¼ in (23.5 cm)
Depth: 6 ½ in (16.5 cm)
*Alexander Purvis was working in North Audley St, Grosvenor Square between 1810 and 1845 and is recorded on page 632 of Brian Loomes’s Watchmakers and Clockmakers of the World: Complete 21st Century edition.
