A superb English carriage clock in a walnut veneered four-glass case standing on four adjustable brass bun feet. It retains its original faceted brass carrying handle.

The elegant case has beautifully patinated walnut veneers and bevelled glasses to the top and sides.

The two train chain fusée movement has a high quality compensated platform lever escapement, with maintaining power. The hours are sounded on a gong which is mounted on the backplate. The clock has a lever on the left hand side of the case for loud/soft adjustment.

The gilt brass dial is exquisitely engraved in and outside the Roman chapter ring and is signed by the maker. The fine blued steel hands with pointed tips appear to be original.

Height, excluding handle: 9 in (23 cm)
Width: 6¼ in (16 cm)
Depth: 5½ in (14 cm)

* Payne worked in London during the first half of the nineteenth century producing some of the finest mantel and carriage clocks of the period.

Top quality English carriage clocks with complex balance wheel escapements in walnut or rosewood veneered cases are highly sought after by collectors and are increasingly rare.

Provenance: The Vitale Collection.
