English carriage clock #314 - Details:

Rare English carriage clock This substantial little English carriage clock, while very similar to the Viner also listed on this site, has very unusual free-standing columns on each corner topped with cone shaped finials. The feel of the deeply engraved thick brass panels that form the case, a massive handle, ornate finials, a bronze base plate, and half-bun feet all add to the sense of high quality workmanship of this timepiece. Two delicately engraved brass rings surround the engine turned silvered dial and two subsidiary dials showing the day and date.

A small seconds ring is located on the main dial just below XII and the Breguet style hands are blued-steel as are the hands on the other dials. A gold plaque mounted horizontally above the access hole for adjusting the time is engraved “HANDS”.

The single barrel movement with vertically positioned three-arm lever balance is signed on the back plate, No. 314, London. The rear panel is of patinated bronze with a gilt brass revolving brass cover for the winding hole. Having just been cleaned and serviced, No. 314 is in good working order. Other than worn paint in some of the engraved numerals, this timepiece is in excellent condition.

Circa 1835
