Early Convex Trunk dial

£2,850.00

An extremely early fusee ‘trunk’ dial wall clock (timepiece) William Purser was working from 1780 and he would have made this circa 1800. The case is constructed of a Cuban mahogany and has the original wax finish. The lower trunk door is held with a lock and key. The brass bezel has a wonderful profile and is fitted with what looks like the original convex glass. The bezel lock was removed some time ago but has been fitted with a more reliable latch! The restored dial shows Roman numerals and outer Arabic’s. The hands are rather special too, a period design and both original. The proportions are perfect, allowing for a longer flat brass rod pendulum.
