A very rare early gilt and black chinoiserie shield dial tavern clock, the 8-Day timepiece movement with rectangular plates. The beautifully shaped bombé base has a removable panel for ease of access to the pendulum bob to make fine adjustments to the clock’s timekeeping, a feature only seen on the very first tavern clocks made.

Height: 59 in (150 cm)
Dial width: 30 in (76 cm)

*Ralph Toleson was working in London in the first quarter of the 18th century and this previously unrecorded clock is the first known tavern clock made by this maker.
