£7,450.00 or Best Offer Sold

Seller: huytonman (1,051) 100%, Location: Henley-on-thames, Ships to: Free Local Pickup, Item: 192550107128 This beautiful clock has a finely constructed movement by Benjamin Wright, born in 1664 and who worked from Bell Alley, London. The movement manufactured circa 1690, has the original verge escapement with regulation via a small bob pendulum and a duration of approx 6 days - timekeeping is excellent. The dial is approx 6 inches square with a single winding hole and calendar window - the movement back plate has fine engraving. The dial and movement are all in excellent condition. The hour and quarters can be sounded via two bells using a hand pulley on demand (this probably means it was designed for the bed chamber) which is based on the Joseph Knibb design of the same era. In 2017 the movement was restored and it runs perfectly. This work was done by the Clock Workshop in Witney and is under warranty until January 2019. The clock will come with the original auction sales receipt and auction catalogue. The clock is 30cm high (plus the handle), 22cm wide and 15cm deep - it is therefore quite compact which makes it very suitable for both modern and older houses. The case which was made some time after the movement is from ebony and is of very good quality with no damage and is in excellent cosmetic condition. I am only prepared to ship this clock if the buyer accepts risk of damage in transit (it can be insured) and strongly prefer collection or delivery within a 50 mile radius of Henley on Thames with payment made at the time of delivery either with cash or bank transfer, no other payment type is acceptable. Please contact me to obtain pricing for shipping and insurance. Age: Antique, Pre-1900, Material: Ebony, Clock Type: Bracket Clock, Type: Bracket Clock, Features: Calendar
