A nice example of a quality Georgian bracket clock by this maker of repute, with a particularly attractive painted dial.

The case has fine rosewood veneers, the shallow canted top surmounted by a brass flaming urn finial. Below, it has brass inlay to the canted corners and inlaid brass patterns of flowerheads, scrolls and quatrefoils, the sides with fish-scale brass sound frets and carrying handles.

The original signed painted Roman dial has a minute track framed by sprays of flowers to the corners.

Matching gilt moon hands.

The twin fusee movement has an anchor escapement, and is rack striking on a bell. It is signed to the dial Frodsham, Gracechurch Street, London. There is a trip repeat cord to repeat the strike of the last hour.
To be sold with a full overhaul and a 3-year guarantee.
