William Hawkins (1703-1775), Bury St. Edmunds, Suffolk
The hood with a stepped arched pediment surmounted by pineapple finials and with Corinthian columns, the trunk with a lip-moulded door, rectangular base and plinth, the signed eleven-inch square brass dial with Roman chapter ring, matted centre and urn centred spandrels, The door and side viewing window glazed in well bevelled glass
The pillared movement with anchor escapement and outside countwheel strike is very much of the design of a Lantern clock with "side by side" strike and going trains. The well made and beautifully scrolled levers are a clear sign of a clockmaker who knew what he was doing. The large anchor escapewheel with small toothform has the corresponding pallet arbour reaching through from the top of the plate on two steel bridges. 229cm high
William Hawkins was the son of the renowned clockmaker, Mark Hawkins, of Bury St. Edmunds
