Derek Roberts Antiques Desk clock - 31210c.fm

Website  
question    /        Devis

Details

This very substantial clock has a gilded and moulded brass framed case, much in the gorge style, with bevelled glasses. The movement, which virtually fills the width of the case, has heavy plates a little over 6 in diameter, and two large going barrels, both driving onto a common arbor and thus providing maintaining power. External clickwork is employed and the backplate is numbered 5288. The jewelled Brocot escapement is mounted between the plates and has a small escape wheel, as would be expected with a long duration clock. There is a two jar mercury compensated pendulum.
