J.Beckett of London

£3,450.00

An interesting early wall clock by the maker J.Beckett of London, this is a transitional ‘dial’ clock with a pegged back box and anchor escapement instead of ‘Verge’. The clock still retains the Salt Box shaped lower apron, shaped cast bezel, silvered, engraved dial and original shaped fusee movement on a gut line. The overall appearance of the clock is very good, the mahogany case has good colour, the glass is convex, the dial has been carefully restored back to a silvered finish and the movement has been fully overhauled in our workshops (on site) and as you can see from the ‘close up’ pictures.
There is a J.Beckett of London recorded working circa 1700. The J.Beckett who made this clock would have been working circa 1790, it’s difficult to know if this could be the same J.Beckett or maybe the son ? We have a few more books to research . Circa 1800-1810.
