The 8-day, two-train, striking movement with an arched brass dial having a strike-silent subsidiary dial within the arch

spandrels, and with a recessed silvered seconds dial in the upper ground; the lower ground with an applied arched silvered
name-plate signed Thompson – London ** above a calendar aperture.
All contained in a mahogany case with arched hood; the hood door flanked by fluted columns with brass capitals and bases,
and enriched with brass stop fluting. The trunk with an arched door and molded edge above a similarly paneled base,
all resting on a stepped plinth with bracket feet and a shaped apron.
Condition: Excellent; works original to case; case with original finish; slight shrinkage warp to hood front right column;
shrinkage crack to hood arch; good working order; key & winder probably original; antique weights
(The strike dial was not attached at the time of the upper image, but is shown in the face image).
** Note: There are several clockmaker’s working in London at this time with the surname of Thompson.
It is impossible to identify which one made this clock. There is the slight possibility that Thompson could be
the name of the retailer as well.
