BR021 - REGENCY ORGAN CLOCK BY WILLIAM ROBSON OF CRIPPLEGATE, LONDON. (1797-1810)
A tall and elaborate clock of superb quality by this London maker who is recorded as a maker of musical clocks.
Whilst the organ is now missing, the clock is a superb example of Regency craftmanship, with the case of walnut wood partly clad with leather.
The case is decorated with coloured glass panels, alabaster columns, and pictures in decorative glass windows to the sides.
The movement is a double fusee striking 8 day with winding on the reverse and a time setting dial.
All has been restored by a variety of craftsmen including enamel restoration on the dial, a book binder who restored the case and leather, and the movement has been
serviced and runs perfectly with its very long pendulum.
The movement is engraved on the reverse with Robson, Cripplegate, London.
