A fine George I period quarter repeating ebonised spring table clock. The elegant case of rare small size stands on four block feet and has an inverted bell top surmounted by a knopped brass carrying handle. The 5 in (12.5 cm) brass dial is mounted with Indian head and foliate corner spandrels and a silvered chapter ring with a subsidiary dial in the arch for strike/silent. The substantial two train fusee 8-day duration movement which fills the case has quarter repeat work on six bells with the hours sounded on a separate bell. It has a verge escapement and the back plate is exquisitely engraved with flowers, foliage and a hoho bird.
