Footnotes

  • Windmills was one of the finest clockmakers working in the late 17th and early 18th centuries. The fact that this dial is 13 inches rather than the standard 12 inches suggests that it was once housed in a large and very impressive case, perhaps with chinoiserie decoration such as that illustrated in Neale, spare holes in the backplate indicate that it was secured into the case with an L-shaped retaining bracket.
    It is sold today with three old pulleys and two 19th century weights.
