TUNNELL. A fine Regency mahogany bracket clock with elegant gilt brass inlays and mounts

OriginLONDON
DateCirca 1830 to 1840
A fine Regency mahogany bracket clock with elegant gilt brass inlays and mounts. The case with a chamfer top is surmounted by a pineapple finial supported by four brass-inlaid ribs. The case stands on four brass ball feet and has a cornucopia carrying handle to each side.

The white painted convex dial is signed by the maker – TUNNELL, LONDON – and set in a cast brass bezel. The blued steel hands are original and have pointed tips.

The good-quality 8-day double fusée movement strikes the hours on a bell. The shouldered back plate has a number of finely shaped cocks and the large brass pendulum bob has an inverted rating screw.

Height: 14 in (35.5 cm) excluding finial
Width: 9 in (23 cm)
Depth: 6 in (15 cm)

*Tunnell was working in Deptford, London between 1814 and 1849 and is recorded on page 783 of Brian Loomes’s Watchmakers and Clockmakers of the World: Complete 21st Century edition.
