A FINE AND INGENIOUS GERMAN STRIKE-A-LIGHT AND ALARM CLOCK, circa 1740
The mechanism is contained in a gilt-brass case, supported on four claw-shaped feet, the case plain, but with mouldings round the base and with a hinged cover. The left side containing an enameled dial with brass and steel hands and fitted with hinged and glazed lid, to the front is a flintlock mechanism with cock and steel. The clock consists of a brass movement with verge escapement and sprung balance wheel, a strike and an alarm train. The alarm is set by means of moving the blued steel hand on the dial towards the remaining hours before striking. Fitted into the base is an arm with a socket for a candle which is held against a spring. When the alarm is activated the bell starts sounding and the flintlock mechanism fires, kindling the gunpowder in the pan which lights the candle which rises to a vertical position as the cover is automatically released.



The clock strikes every full hour and has a repeating possibility, the movement is of twenty-four hours duration.
