A good George IV period wall timepiece in original condition. The 12-inch wooden painted convex dial has a single band of Roman numerals and an outer band for the minutes. The finely tapering spade-shaped pointers are almost certainly original. It has a Georgian concave brass bezel with an integral lock and it sits on a turned patinated outer mahogany bezel.

The 8-day timepiece movement has shaped brass rectangular plates, anchor escapement and brass bob spring-suspended pendulum.

Date: circa 1825 -1830

Height: 14 ½ in (37 cm)

Overall Diameter: 14 ½ in (37 cm)

Dial Width: 12 in (30.5 cm)

Depth: 6 in (15 cm)

* John Butler is listed on page 125 of Brian Loomes’ Clockmakers of the World: 21st Century Edition as working in Reading, Berkshire between 1823 and 1840.

 This clock is a beautifully presented example of a pre-Victorian wooden dial wall timepiece and as such is quite rare.
