Object Description

A fine George III period mahogany regulator of rare small size.

The refined case with a shallow moulded cornice, similar to the case work of Thomas Mudge, is veneered with mahogany of fine colour and patination. Standing on block feet, there is a double plinth to the moulded panelled base. The case door has an elaborate top. The hood has a shallow arch top, which has reeded chamfered corners.

The 10 inch shallow arched brass dial is signed ‘Aubert and Klaftenberger, London’. It has an Arabic minute dial which encloses two subsidiaries, an Arabic seconds dial and a Roman numeral dial for the hours.

The substantial 8-day movement with maintaining power is of the highest quality, with five knopped pillars, a deadbeat escapement with adjustable jewelled pallets. The wooden rod pendulum has a heavy lenticular brass bob and outsize brass ball shaped rating nut..

Object History

It is probable that this fine regulator was never signed by its original maker but was inscribed and sold by Aubert and Klaftenberger in the 1840s when they were making and retailing clocks in London.
