William Simpson, Kennington - A Regency Bracket Clock

A chamfer-topped mahogany bracket clock that typifies this classic Regency design with the case having brass & ebony inlay to the lower front panel, brass inlay to the inset corner panels and further brass trim to the canted corners whilst to the sides are fish-scale frets with gilded shell handles above with the chamfer top surmounted by a gilded acorn finial sitting atop a small well executed plinth, all standing on typical ball feet. The eight-day, double fusee movement strikes the hours on a bell with a pull repeat. The round eight-inch convex dial has black Roman numerals, blued steel ‘moon’ hands and is signed by the maker ‘W. Simpson, Kennington'. The rear of the dial is covered in the most wonderful history of repairs, along with what appears to be a date of manufacture as signed by Simpson, all in varying styles of script from the scribbled to the most beautiful hand-writing. Included are dates for the years 1839, 1847 and 1852. William Simpson is recorded as first working in London in the late 18th century having been made a Freeman of the Clockmaker’s Company in 1781, before continuing into the early-to-mid 1800’s. Height: 19 inches (48.25 cms) Please click on images to enlarge: Any additional images are shown below
