A Rare Continental Mid 18th Century Verge Bracket Clock, with Alarm
An exquisite 30-hour fruitwood continental bracket clock, circa 1740. The inverted bell-top case is topped by a hinged gilded carrying handle top.
The hinged break-arch front door and upper quadrant panels are flanked by further break-arch windows to the sides, with the rear door also matching the front set.
A 6-inch gilt brass break-arch dial with alarm disc to the matted centre bears the text DE SIARME, LONDON. An impressive and rare find.
