GANTHONY ENGLISH REGENCY PERIOD LIBRARY TIMEPIECE

A fine English Regency period library timepiece, the gilt engine turned dial with Roman hour numerals and original blued steel hands which have pierced tips. The high quality single fusée movement runs for eight days. 

The fire gilt drumhead top sits on its original black marble base which has an applied gilt metal wreath with fruits, foliage and a male mask along its front edge. The case stands on four original engine-turned gilt brass feet. 

On the rear edge of the marble base there is a bronze plaque with the following inscription:

He was a member of the Clockmakers’ Company from 1821 until his death in 1845. He is listed on page 290 of Brian Loomes’ “Watchmakers and Clockmakers of the World – 21st century edition”.
