A fine George III regulator in an elegant architectural figured mahogany veneered case which has achieved a good mellow colour with excellent patination.  There is a double plinth to the panelled base, long moulded trunk door and the hood is flanked by fluted chamfers with brass reeds.

The twelve inch silvered square brass dial is finely engraved and includes an aperture to view the day of the month and a strike/silent option.  The centre of the dial is signed by the maker, Vulliamy London N° 255

The high quality 8-day duration movement has five pillars, a deadbeat  escapement with separate steel pallet pads which are set within the morticed brass pallet frame. The hours are sounded on a single bell via a rack striking mechanism. The ebonised lozenge sectioned wood rod pendulum has a large brass lenticular bob with a silvered calibrated rating nut beneath. The pair of brass cased weights appear to be original.

Date: circa 1780

Height: 83 ¾ in (212.5 cm)
