Slim and elegant, this northern English clock has distinctive design features favored by the Gillows cabinetmakers: an architectural pediment with panels of Chippendale-inspired geometric fretwork, and shaped and dentil mouldings around the hood door. The long shaped door is veneered with sabicu, an exotic hardwood. The eight-day movement strikes hourly, features strike repeating and a lunar mechanism.
Georgian Regulators were made with features that ensure accuracy in timekeeping, and were robustly built to support their heavy brass movements. Usually made by clockmakers for use in their own shops - as this apparently was -the emphasis is on fine clockmaking rather than fashionable decoration.
The dial is engraved in full regulator format with minutes around the perimeter, seconds prominently displayed above the center, and hours shown in an aperture below the center. Rendell's eight day timepiece engine is outstanding in design and execution; large and heavy with shaped plates and six latched pillars, it is mounted on a thick mahogany seatboard.
Dated by maker 1789
Beautifully crafted and very distinctive in style, this Bristol clock is of solid and veneered mahogany with flame veneer on the trunk door. Hood columns are fluted and capped with brass Corinthian capitals.
The 12 inch brass-and-silvered dial features a lunar dial and high tide times for "Bristol Key" around the arch. Thomas Wiggan's four pillar movement is eight days duration with rack striking on a single bell, with lunar movement and calendar date.

As horologically interesting as it is physically impressive, this mahogany clock has a substantial case that is scaled to support its 14.5-inch brass dial and very heavy five-pillar movement. It has three trains-- time, hourly strike, and quarter- strike; a full annual calendar, a sweep-center seconds hand, and lunar works.
8 feet, 5 inches high
This is an exceptionally original London clock in superb condition. The beautifully patinated pagoda-toppedcase has minimal restoration (see DETAILS), and the eight day movement strikes the quarter hours on a nest of eight bells. Strike silencing is also featured. The dial is very nicely laid out, with the monthly calendar and strike/silent indicators in the arch.
