18th Century Tavern/Act of Parliament Clock U993

DescriptionA late 18th century large wall hung Tavern Clock (often called Act of Parliament clocks after a short lived tax on clocks that was passed by Parliament in 1797). These clocks were hung in taverns and inns, where the general public were able to see the time displayed.
This fine example has a black ebonised case and a 20inch gold faced dial with black Roman numerals. The glass clock face cover has a finely turned mahogany bezel that lends warmth to the clock case. The weight driven original 7-8 day brass movement is in clean working order. Original hinges and escutcheon, and attractive moulded wedge shaped base show the quality of this handsome clock. Circa 1780
