It is a absolute pleasure to offer this fully restored George III brass mounted mahogany table clockBenjamin Sidey, London, circa 1785
The five pillar double fusee bell striking movement with chinoiserie engraved backplate has been fully serviced in our onsite workshop and works without fault having been on test for three weeks prior to listing for sale.
The 7 inch brass break-arch dial with calendar and false bob apertures and silvered nameplate signed Benj Sidey, London has also been fully restored to give the the dial a fresh lease of life for many years to come. The pierced steel hands and rococo scroll cast spandrels are a fantastic compliment to the dial and subsidiary strike / silent dial.
The mahogany case is a stunning example. The case have been refinishing by our master craftsman french polisher/case restorer. The break arch door and pads to the top of the case are surrounded with brass banding giving the clock that extra elegance (please note the feet are not original)
Benjamin Sidey Jnr is recorded in Baillie, G.H. Watchmakers & Clockmakers of the World as apprenticed (presumably to his father of the same name) in 1731 and gaining his freedom of the Clockmaker's Company in 1738. He subsequently worked from Moorfields, London until 1795
This clock is a fantastic example, of great proportions standing 17 1/2 inches high with the handle up 10 1/4 inches wide and 7 deep. This clock needs for nothing and is in excellent condition ready to be displayed in your home.
