Chandler London Ca 1765

Possibly Edward Chandler who was app to John Wightman 27 Sep 1717.

A very rare English  brass cased travelling clock . The eight day movement with restored verge escapement and fully engraved backplate. The bell is underslung  within the movement to allow room for the hammer in what is a neat and unusually shaped case. A similar arrangement is employed by the famous clockmaker John Ellicott but with a remote pivoted hammer on the side for the same reason.  An extremely smart little clock impervious to the beetle on the grand tour.

Height 33 cms. Width 23cms. Depth 15 cms.

Price. £21500 Circa. 1765
