“Bracket clocks” originated in the 17th and 18th centuries as small weight-driven clocks that fit on a bracket on the wall. Using the handle on top allowed the owner (or his/her servants as these were luxury items) to move the clock from room-to-room, bracket-to-bracket, for timekeeping purposes throughout the residence. When spring-driven clocks were developed, the popular “bracket clock” case style was continued and the clocks became far more portable, many with the handle on top for purposes of moving as well as retaining the original design character.

Here is a magnificent English bracket clock for your consideration

Physical: The mahogany case, which measures 11"w x 17.5"h x 6.5"d features a mahogany crotchwood front panel with inlaid brass in a style typical of the early 19th century. It was professionally restored in late 2016 using the original shellac methodology. The dial was restored by one of the top dial people in the U.S. The side panels feature a brass "half-moon" grille, the lower section of the front has brass inlay and sits on brass "bun" feet. There are keys for the bezel, back, and winding.

Mechanical: The eight-day, time-and-bell-strike double-fusée movement was recently professionally overhauled and is in excellent mechanical condition. Note the elaborate engraving on the movement and pendlum, including the maker's signature.

Comments: Here is a clock with an extraordinary case, with a fabulous hand-engraved movement, all in exceptional condition. A fine example of the old clock masters at their best. And waiting for you to beckon it to your bracket, or sideboard, or credenza. Give us a call to start the process.
