A rare giant carriage clock by James McCabe of London. It bears the signature, James McCabe Royal Exchange on the dial above the Roman numerals, and the description, London No. 1719 below. The clock also bears the signature James McCabe on the backplate located below the bell.
The senior James McCabe was born into a watch and clock making family in Belfast and came to London in the 1770's. He moved into the Royal Exchange in 1804 until his death in 1811. He was succeeded by his son, also James, who came to be regarded as one of the finest English clockmakers of the 19th century.
This clock has a very early number (No.1719) and dates from circa 1830. It has an 8 day double fusee movement striking on a bell, platform escapement with slow/fast regulator and a rectangular silvered dial in a gilt metal 4-glass case. There is a scratch to the front of the glass which is difficult to detect. The clock was missing its key when purchased but we have now found a replacement.
This lovely clock is in full working order.
