D380. A fine quality three train mahogany fusee bracket clock which chimes the quarters on either 8 bells (Whittington) or 4 bells (Westminster) and is provided with a pendulum clamp. The clock would date circa 1880 and is loosely in the Georgian style.

The case has a bell- top with carrying handle. To the top of the case are four finials and the corners are canted, grooved and brass strung. The sides have brass frets. The glazed front door has three silk backed and gilded frets and the top and the border around the break-arch dial is bounded by a brass mould. The clock rests on a brass covered mould with shallow bracket feet.

The brass bound break-arch dial has a silvered chapter ring with roman numerals interspersed by half hour marks. Interestingly on the back of the dial and on the front-plate of the movement is a capital D. Floral spandrels are employed. Above 12 is the fast/slow regulation. Next to 2 is the selection for Whittington/Westminster chimes and at 9 the strike/silent. Below 12 is the name plaque, M.F.Dent. London; However at this relatively late period it is quite likely that they would have brought the movement in from one of the major clock-makers such as Smiths of Clerkenwell or Thwaites.

Ht with/without handle 17.5"/16" (44.5/40cms.
