Fine George III Eight-Day Striking Mahogany Bracket Clock with Trip Repeat

$11,433.40

About

A fine George III eight-day striking mahogany bracket clock with trip repeat and silvered dial, by Dwerrihouse Carter & Son of Berkeley Square London, circa 1808-1815. The eight-day twin fuse movement with trip repeat mechanism strikes on a bell and keeps fantastic time. The brass backplate is inscribed 'Dwerrihouse, Carter & Son, Berkeley Square'. Similarly, the silvered brass arched dial is inscribed 'Dwerrihouse, Carter & Son' and below BERKELEY SQUARE' with subsidiary seconds and 'STRIKE/NON STRIKE' dials above Roman hour numerals and minute divisions. The original hands are extremely fine and unusual, swimming like eels to a fine tip, they certainly bring the clock to life. The fine figured mahogany case with moulded break-arch pediment is surmounted by a gilt-brass carry handle fitted to a moulded plinth, above brass ball finials, glazed door with a gilt brass internal ovolo moulding and fine stop-fluted brass inlaid canted-corner columns. The sides with pierced gilt scale fret panels on a moulded rectangular double plinth and gilt-brass ball feet. Measures: Height 44.7cm Note: Dwerrihouse, Carter & Son are recorded working in London between 1808 and 1815. Provenance: Purported to have been presented by King George III to one of his secretaries named Whale and later sold by his great-grandson through Lories Ltd Birmingham to Miss Norah Giles for £35 on May 19th 1921. The clock comes with its original pendulum, winding key and associated paperwork.
