19th Century Gilt-Brass Engraved Striking and Repeating Carriage Clock

$7,977.19

About

The superb engraved gilt brass gorge case has facetted glass panels to all sides so that the movement is almost entirely visible. The top has an oval window set in an engraved mask through which the original silvered platform escapement can be seen. At the back, there is a door giving access to the winding and setting arbors. The clock is surmounted by a typically shaped carrying handle. The circular enamel dial is set in a fine elaborately engraved gilt-brass mask and has a Roman chapter ring with an outer minute track with five-minute markers. The time is indicated by a fine pair of blued-steel Breguet hands. The retailer has marked the dial in the following manner: G. WADHAM BATH. The spring-driven eight-day movement of this charming clock is constructed between plates. It consists of going and striking trains. The going train has an English lever escapement on a silvered platform with hairspring balance and regulation. It can be adjusted by a regulator pin which can be seen through the window in the top and is accessible through the back door. The striking indicates the hour fully and the half hours with a single stroke on a bell. In addition, it has a repeat button at the top, with which the last hour struck can be repeated at will. The backplate is marked with the word hands and an arrow to indicate the function of the arbor and the direction in which to turn. Note on the retailer George Wadham was active in the period 1846-1878. He also sold watches and barometers.
