Just arrived - An unusual Regency bracket/table clock by this well known Clockmaker featuring a single fusee movement. Due to the use of a single fusee movement it’s quite possible that this clock was made as a bedroom clock.
The silvered brass dial is signed R. Ganthony, Lombard Street, London 126. This maker was working between 1811 to 1845 and was considered an important maker of the day. Unusually the hands have been cut in brass and are exquisitely made
The typical lancet top case is veneered with mahogany to the sides and features lancet shaped brass sound frets, lion head handles and brass ball feet
The front of the case is veneered with flame mahogany and inlaid with raised ebony beading. The dial can be accessed via a glazed cast brass bezel
