A fine 18th century George III period ebonized striking bracket clock of rarer, smaller size. The well proportioned bell-top ebonized case is surmounted by a cast brass carrying handle and four pine cone finials.

The 6 inch signed, brass dial has twin subsidiary dials for strike or silent and for slow or fast regulation. There are mock pendulum and date apertures within the matted centre of the dial.

The five pillar fusee movement has an engraved, signed backplate with verge escapement and arbor striking on a bell.

Literature: William Allam was a well-known maker who is recorded on page 11 of Loomes’ ‘Watchmakers and Clockmakers of the World: Complete 21st century Edition’. Allam worked from Bond St. London and was a brother of the Clockmakers Company between 1743 and 1785.
