DWERRIHOUSE, BERKELEY SQUARE. A fine George III period longcase clock in a classical architectural case

Origin
London
Date
circa 1800

A fine George III period longcase clock in a classical architectural case by this highly respected London clockmaker.

The refined and elegant case retains its original Greek pedimented top. It has achieved excellent patination in its well-figured mahogany veneers and stands on a shaped double plinth with raised moulded panel to the base and long moulded trunk door.   The delicate architectural hood is flanked by canted corners and a beautifully moulded door.

The 12 inch brass and silvered square dial is engraved with Roman hour numerals and Arabic numerals for the five minute markers. It has a subsidiary seconds ring below XII and an aperture to view the day of the month above VI.  The dial is signed by the maker and above twelve o’clock there is a lever for the strike/silent option.  

The high quality five pillar movement includes an original anchor escapement and rack strike.  The hours are sounded on a bell.  The clock is complete with its original flat steel pendulum rod, large brass bob pendulum with calibrated rating nut, weights and a pair of dome topped brass weights.

Height: 79 ½ in (202 cm)

* John Dwerrihouse is a very well-known clockmaker who was free of the Clockmakers’ Company in 1781. He began working in Charles Street and then moved to Berkeley Square in 1800.
