Object Description

A fine example of a 1850s English bracket clock in a small case. At less than 6 inches deep, this is a clock that can be accommodated where most English bracket clocks cannot.

The veneers of the rosewood case are well-figured, the drum-top especially displaying a wealth of movement in the veneer. The case benefits from the more simple styling of the early part of the Victorian era and the clock has an elegance to it.

The 5 ½ inch dial has been sympathetically restored, and is signed by the maker Jonathan Bailey, London with Roman numerals within a minute track.

Matching black steel hands.

The timepiece fusee movement has a locking pendulum for transportation. It is to be overhauled and guaranteed for 3 years.

Object History

John Bailey of London is listed in Brian Loomes’ Watchmakers and Clockmakers of the World, Vol II as working in 1857.
