Rare Satinwood Mantel Clock of small size


Sold: 24th February 2015

An exceptional English Single Fusee mantel clock of small size and with rare Satinwood cabinet work.

The 8 day duration single fusee movement of substantial quality with four tapered plate pillars and anchor escapement. Also with finely made pendulum and transportation fixing point. The 4" square painted dial framed with a silvered brass square and with Roman chapters and matching blued steel hands of exquisite quality and design as used by the well known makers Payne of London. The small and very well proportioned four glass satinwood case with ogee moulding, four block feet and unusual rosewood veneered canted corners. The top and sides of the case with rectangular bevelled inspection points.

Note: Very few small mantel clocks from this period exist and even fewer are made using Satinwood. This particular example is anonymous but its very likely that it did once have a retailers name on the dial and would have been made by one of the fine makers of the time, perhaps based in Clerkenwell. A rare example.
