William IV period bracket clock – Tick Tock Thursday

This week’s horological shenanigans have seen us fully restore a William IV period bracket clock. This rare clock takes cues from the grand tours and has an Egyptian feel to the design. This is a stunningly original flame mahogany double fusee striking bracket clock.


The Egyptian influenced case is finished in a wonderfully deep flame mahogany. This is only seen in the finest of early 19th century clocks. Finished off with fine brass inlay scrolls, flower heads with ebony inserts and cross banding to the stepped top. I have very carefully removed all the layers of dirt and soot to reveal the original shellac high polish finish. This has to be seen to be fully appreciated.


The double fusee movement is totally handmade with its hand cut crossing to all the wheels. These crossings making the shape of a star. The overall quality of the movement is excellent and has been totally overhauled by me personally. So I can give a full three years guarantee to safeguard your investment.


The original convex dial has received the most careful of conservation based cleaning. As such it compliments the rest of the clock.
I would date this clock to William IV ( c1830)

William Webster Bracket Clock

A William Webster Bracket clock in for restoration. This clock features a highly engraved back plate. With double fusee movement and verge escapement and subsidiary dial depicting the phase of the moon and a date ring. The owners discovered this clock in a loft, and were preparing it for sale. William Webster was the apprentice of the eminent Thomas Tompion. At any rate, a beautiful piece by one of the most prominent clock makers in the country.
