A fine William III period ebony veneered table clock by this excellent maker.

The eight day movement, which strikes the hours on a single bell, has a restored verge escapement, short bob pendulum and pull quarter repeatwork on six bells. The dial has unusual foliate corner spandrels and a chapter ring with fleur-de-lys half-hour markers. The date indicator is inset above 6 o’clock and there is a crescent shaped aperture for the false pendulum within the finely matted dial. There is a strike/non strike lever above XII.

The elaborate back plate is exquisitely engraved with birds, flowers and foliate scrolls. The maker's signature is set within a wheatear bordered oval cartouche just below the centre.

The elegant case is constructed primarily in oak and veneered with ebony. It has a shallow domed top with a knopped and facetted brass carrying handle. The ebony case has a very distinctive bolection moulded front door which is very unusual.

Height: 14 in (36 cm)

*William Wolfall was a clockmaker who had his workshops in St Martin in the Fields where he had a number of apprentices in the latter part of the 17th and the early years of the 18th centuries.
