Lot Details
An early 19th century quarter chiming mahogany table clock
Sarjent, Jermyn St, London,
surmounted by a canted caddy and five urn finials over stop fluted quarter columns to the front angles, on a moulded plinth base and brass ogee bracket feet, the 7.75 inch arched painted Roman dial with twin subsidiaries for rise and fall regulation and strike/silent option, with matching hands and minute track, the substantial triple wire fusee movement with anchor escapement striking the hours on a bell and chiming the quarters on a run of eight bells and hammers, the pendulum with facetted and fettled rod, the backplate bordered by engraved patterns and centred by an oval and the letters 'JS', 68cm high

Footnotes

  • The surname Sergeant was spelled in different ways throughout the Georgian era, sometimes without the 'a' sometimes with a 'j'. Bearing in mind the backplate is engraved JS, it would seem appropriate to attribute this clock to Joseph Sargent, working in Jermyn Street from 1794-1820. He was Watchmaker to the Princess of Wales.
