A late 19th century mahogany cased Georgian style bracket clock. The mahogany case has canted corners, stands on four bun feet, has four turned finial decorations to the top and a hinged brass carrying handle. The dial is silverised and has the subsidiary dials, one to silence the chimes and the other to advance and retard the time. The clock has an eight day movement that strikes the quarter, half and hour on a pair of curled gongs and the works are stamped " W & H Sch " for Winterhalder and Hofmeier of Schwarzenbach Germany. Winterhalder and Hofmeier are one of the most famous German Victorian clockmakers. The firm was started by Anton Winterhalder in Schwarzenbach, Germany in 1810, taking Anton Hofmeier into partnership in 1850, with the business finally closing on the death of Winterhalder's last son Linus in 1910. The clock is in full working condition and the works come with a twelve month guarantee by Robert Taylor & Son.
