A walnut Dutch hanging wall bracket clock by Johannes Duschesne, Amsterdam, dated c.1740-60.

The 10½-inch brass dial with ringed winding holes has a silvered chapter ring with Roman numerals within an outer minute track and an inner quarter-hour track. Outside the silvered ring the brasswork is engraved; the centre is matted.
The subsidiary silvered ring indicates the phase of the moon, the outer ring numbered from 1 to 29. and the inner ring twice numbered from 1 to 12, for tidal indication.

On opening the door there is a circular cut-out in the wooden dial surround which reveals a painted spherical moon above the dial.

The walnut case has well-figured veneers to the architectural pediment, with Doric pilasters to the hood front. The hood slides forwards to access the movement.

The movement is of eight-day duration, with four knopped pillars, and a nested pair of bells. It has an anchor escapement with typical Dutch striking on a rack. That is to say, on the hours the larger top bell is struck the required number of times; on the half hour the smaller bell is struck the same number of times.

Original matching intricate blued steel hands.
Overhauled and guaranteed for 3 years
Johannes Duchesne is listed in Britten's as working c.1750.
