A n exceptionally rare George II period shield dial Tavern Clock of
most unusual elongated form, the 8 Day movement with rectangular
shaped plates. On the dial below the chapter ring are two outer angels
playing trumpets and a central angel holding a scythe and an hour glass.
The chinoiserie decoration on the door is also very distinctive with sun and
clouds at the top and an intimate dining scene below.
* Thomas Chappell is listed as working in Great Tower Street, London between
1754 and 1763. This clock is described at length on pages 113 – 114 of Martin
Gatto’s book ‘The Tavern Clock’ where he emphasizes both its rarity and
uniqueness of form and decoration.
