Single train fusee movement with a chain drive. The movement is held in place with two right-angled brackets and the pendulum is fitted with a locking bridge and knurled screw, which enables easy transportation.
The 3 ½” brass dial is engraved and silvered and fitted with blued steel trefoil and bayonet hands.
These small clocks are sometimes referred to as four glasses though this one has five because of the glazed back door. The top and side glasses are thick with a bevelled edge that protrudes above the veneers. The front glasses are rarely bevelled because aesthetically they look clumsy with an angled sight-ring and spoil the look of the dial.
The case is veneered in rosewood with solid rosewood mouldings and button feet. Rosewood typically has a very dark grain that is enhanced over time as the wood fades thus creating subtle variation in the colour, all of which are evident in this little clock.
James Bennett was a clockmaker who had a long career commencing at the age of thirteen with a 7 year apprenticeship to Peter Amyot in 1773. He was High Sheriff of Norwich in 1826. He died in 1845.
