ARNOLD and DENT. An exceptional miniature library timepiece

Origin
London
Date
circa 1820 - 1830

An exceptional miniature library timepiece by this well-known partnership, the 8-day single fusee movement with anchor escapement and substantial brass bob pendulum.

The beautiful highly figured rosewood case has a finely chamfered top. There is an inset dentil moulding above the opening front door and an inset brass chamfer to each upright section. It stands on four adjustable brass bun feet.

The 2 ¾ inch enamel dial is supported by a finely engraved silver mask with scrolling foliage. The dial itself has Roman hour numerals and an outer minute band. The dial is signed by the maker within the chapter ring between XI and I and the signature is repeated on the backplate. The delicately tapering blued steel hands appear to be original.

Height: 8 in (20.2 cm

Width: 5 in (12.5 cm)

Depth: 4 ½ in (11.6 cm)

Arnold and Dent are listed on page of Brian Loomes’ Clockmakers of the World: 21st Century Edition as working in Regent Street from 1827 – 1850. Their clocks were of the finest quality and this beautiful miniature mantel clock is no exception.
