An imposing and impressive, very original cartel clock. The carved wood case, has its original gesso and gilt finish. The tradition form is of a ho-ho bird above a Rococo style case and an engraved 10" diameter silvered dial with a mock pendulum. The 8 day verge movement has A shaped plates and a bob pendulum. The dial is engraved by the maker Edward Hunsdon Jnr. of Chelmsford. An Edward Hunsdon is listed as working in 1730-1782. A truly amazing piece in fantastic original condition.
The case retains its original gilding with monior surface imperfections and shakes in the main body. The movement is in working order having recently been serviced.
