Description

• The Webster Family were one of London’s prestigious Master clock and chronometer makers. The business was started by William (1st) Webster in 1711 and lasting into the beginning of the 20th Century, was continuously run by generations of the same family who were all Master Clock Makers. William learnt his skills under Thomas Tompion and was regarded as one of London’s best clockmakers.
• The clock can be dated fairly accurately as the firm moved to Cornhill in 1815 (under Richard Webster its most successful period) and the beautifully figured mahogany lancet case is decorated with ebony classical motifs and stylised ormolu lions in the early Regency manner of Thomas Hope.
• The elegant clock is 7-10cm smaller than typical lancet clocks and is in superb original condition. It has its original painted face (rare) with all original fittings and no signs of replacement veneer, merely a few typical age related signs of movement. It’s also developed a lovely honey colour.
• The high quality movement is also totally original with a clear bell strike on the hours, pull hours repeat, a sophisticated precision pendulum adjustment with carrying pin and elaborate crisp chasing to the back plate – holding brackets (rare on Regency clocks).
• Presented in fully serviced condition with a 12 month guarantee (UK only)
• Delivery £100 uk ex Scotland.

Shipping
Other than a few smaller items that can be safely posted, nearly all items are hand delivered (and set up in the case of clocks) by Martin Bros who are one of Britain’s most prestigious carriers of antiques and fine art. I wish us avoid the hassle of cheap men and their vans! The standard (subsidised) delivery price shown is for mainland UK excluding Scotland.

**************************************
Restoration and Presented Condition
I do not subscribe to the shabby chic or make it like new approach using modern materials which can make future restoration extremely difficult and impede long-term investment value.
Any restoration work is done to the highest (museum) standards using traditional materials so as to not compromise the patina of age.
Accordingly, please note some antique items for sale will have wear and marks associated with use over many generations that adds to the aesthetic beauty of the piece from the collector’s perspective.
