ROBERT MOLYNEUX. A good late Regency ebonised pearwood bracket clock

Origin
London
Date
circa 1830 - 1840

A good late Regency ebonised pearwood 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 brass carrying handle to each side.

The white painted convex dial is signed by the maker, ­Robert Molyneux, London,  and set in a cast brass bezel. The blued steel hands are original and have spade shaped tips.

The good-quality 8-day double fusee 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.

Date: 1830-1840

Height: 19 ½ in (49.5 cm) excluding finial

Width: 11 in (28 cm)                                   

Depth: 6 ¾ in (17.25 cm) including feet
