John Everell Bracket Clock| Tick Tock Thursday

This week has seen us start the restoration on a lovely early 18th century ebonised bracket clock with “silent pull” by John Everell. The case is a wonderfully small in size being 15″ high with the handle down. The natural ageing and patina is simply lovely. We intend to gently clean and wax the case to preserve this finish. The 6″ dial is framed with “flower” spandrels which date this clock to around c1745.

The makers name is engraved in the top arch. John Everell traded from “By the new church” The Strand London from c1730 to c1760. The highly engraved five knopped pillar movement with depictions of birds and scrolls has a verge escapement and a pull mechanism that rings the hours and quarter hours on two bells. As you can see from the photos, the plates have been polished using chalk and look brilliant! The next couple of days should see the rest of the clock repaired and polished.
