DateCirca 1810
A good late George III period painted convex dial mahogany bracket clock by this excellent maker.

The elegant three padtop case, veneered with finely figured mahogany of good colour and patination, has a brass carrying handle and a full opening front door with a cast brass concave bezel, convex glass inset brass sound frets.

The white convex enamel dial, 7 inches in diameter, has Roman hour numerals and minute divisions. The brass hands are of the delicate interlacing scroll pattern.

The double fusee movement runs for 8 days and strikes the hours on a bell. There is a repeat cord for repeating the previous hour. The backplate is beautifully engraved with flowers and foliage centred by a stunning central Prince of Wales feathers set within a round foliate cartouche.

Height: 13 ½ in (34 cm)
Width: 11 ¼ in (28.5 cm)
Depth: 8 in (20 cm)

* Joseph York Hatton was a very good clockmaker who is listed on page 357 of Brian Loomes’ Clockmakers of the World : 21st Century Edition as working in London from 1785 until 1832. We previously had an exceptional mahogany longcase by this maker.
