English Rare Regency Egyptian Style Bracket Clock
This rare English bracket clock dates to the late Regency period. The case exhibits the elegant geometric symmetry and brass detail evocative of the Egyptian revival influence prevalent during the Regency period. The clock is crafted from rich flame mahogany, characterized by the flame-like pattern appearing in the wood grain. Ebony trim and brass ormolu details further adorn the case, adding interest and dimension. The convex porcelain dial with Roman numerals displays the time.
The dial and movement bear the name “Desbois & Wheeler London”, notable English clockmakers from approximately 1790-1835.
The fully restored 8-day two-train chain fusèe movement strikes a bell every hour. The clock comes with a one year warranty.
