Important And Rare Sedan Clock By Joseph Glenny C.1810..No. 371.

Status: This item has been sold
Sold by: Finchingfield Antiques


The engine turned brass case enclosing a 30 hour chain driven verge movement of sublime quality, with finned cannon barrel pillars, holding canted rectangular plates.
The unusual bridge cock with very fine engraving & large end stone, blued screws with further engraving under the balance wheel.
The back plate with the makers name " Joseph Glenny " and numbered 371. with fast/slow, all finely engraved.
Joseph Glenny 1784 - 1826 had two sons, George and Joseph, both apprenticed to him along with Isaac Cooper and William Brooks.
This sedan could have been made by Joseph senior or junior, my assumption is that they specialised in watch cases, hence the more unusual engine turned brass case, rather than turned mahogany.
Sedan clocks are becoming increasingly rare these days, finding one in an unaltered case and original sedan movement is exceptional. However, this one goes one step further by having a dial that I have never seen before in a sedan. A hand painted country scene with a church, river and bridges. The clock on the tower being the actual working dial with very fine " Beetle & Poker " hands.
The movement has been fully overhauled and is running very well and is guaranteed for one year.
Case 13.5cm,
dial 11.5 cm,
movement 4.5 cm X 6cm.
