notes suggest that the cost of it at that time was £57-10-00. Plus £2-50 for the jewelling.
The arched top case has an inspection hatch at the top to assist with setting it up and putting it “in beat”. There are also cut-outs on either side of the seat-board. The inside of the backboard is decorated with highly figured walnut as is the recessed panel to the base.
The silvered brass dial some 12" in diameter has a conventional regulator layout with an outer
ring with arabic numerals for the minutes and large seconds and hour dials. There is a silvered brass bezel.
The movement, with four pillars, screwed to the back and pinned to the front, has substantial plates some 7.5" x 5.5". Maintaining power is provided; the wheel-work has four crossings
and the pallets are jewelled. The mercury compensated pendulum, suspended from a
heavy bracket fixed to the back-plate, has a suspension which provides beat regulation. An ivory beat-scale is provided; the pulley, with six crossings, is an attractive feature and the winding key, with some damage, is thought to be the original.
