Regency Bracket Clock

circa 1820

The clock will be offered in the next Bryant Estate Sale,

in Auburn AL, on April 26–27, 2014

The Period II dial uses Arabic, not Roman, numerals. The minute numbers are in divisions of five, not fifteen, a transitional style seen in English clocks from 1810-1830. The porcelain dial is uniformly crazed.

The term, “Regency era”, sometimes refers to a more extended time frame than the decade of the formal Regency. The period between 1795 and 1837 (the latter part of the reign of George III and the reigns of his sons George IV, as Prince Regent and King, and William IV) was characterized by distinctive trends in British architecture, literature, fashions, politics, and culture. If “Regency era” is being used to describe the transition between Georgian and Victorian eras, the focus is on the “pre-Victorian” period from 1811, when the formal Regency began, until 1837 when Queen Victoria succeeded William IV. - wikipedia

A bracket clock is a small table clock made to be carried from room to room by the owner. The early models were pendulum driven and often sat on wall brackets so the weights might be suspended below. These clocks almost always have movements which strike the hour, half or quarter hour.

After the introduction of fusee and spring wound and driven movements, the style continued to be called ‘bracket’.

Regency Style

The fusee driven movement features one or more conical spirally grooved pulleys (fusees) from which a cord, cable or chain unwinds onto a cylinder containing the mainspring By its increasing diameter the fusee compensates for the lessening power of the spring as the clock ‘winds down’.
