A fine small Tavern Timepiece with a white dial and gilt and chinoiserie lacquered case. The decoration to the trunk door is of an oriental figure standing in front of various pavilions and trees. The trunk sides are filled with chrysanthemum sprays set within gilt lines. The gilt scrolling signature – John Lord, Farringdon - is written below the dial between the well-shaped gilt ear pieces.

The round dial has a moulded and turned surround and has Roman numerals, single crossings to the minutes circle and Arabic outside five minutes. The brass hands are well pierced and gilded with heart shaped tips. The weight driven 8-day movement has A shaped plates, a five wheel train with anchor escapement and a steel pendulum rod with brass faced bob.

Date: circa 1785

* John Lord is listed on page 492 of Brian Loomes’ Watchmakers and Clockmakers of the World: 21st Century Edition as working in Farringdon in Hampshire between 1784 and 1830. Tavern clocks of small proportions are comparatively rare.
