A satinwood inlaid mahogany cased miniature bracket clock. 221140

So cute! This very attractive mahogany cased bracket clock is decorated with a number of satinwood inlays. Many of which accent the shape of the domed topped case form.

This case stands on four brass ogee bracket feet. These are applied to the bottom of the case and feature a relaxed design. The broad flat facing base molding is line inlaid at the top before it transitions to a shaped or cove molding. This treatment is also repeated on the sides of the case. The front of the case is framed with an inlaid border. A number of inlaid panels are incorporated in the design of the case. These are nicely shaped. Inset into the front corners of the case are fully turned brass columns that terminate in Doric style capitals. The dial bezel is also brass. This is fitted with a convex piece of glass that protects the dial. The top of the case is fitted with a brass mounted carrying handle.

The enamel dial measures 4 inches in diameter. Dotted minutes and slashes at the five minute markers frame the large Arabic style hour numerals. These are presented in a tumbled fashion. The time is indicated by the black steel spade shaped hands.

The time-only movement is designed to run eight-days on a full wind. The movement is heavy and well made. It features a balance wheel escapement and appears to be of French origin. The quality is very good.

This clock measures approximately 12 inches tall wit the handle in the upright position. Measured at the feet, it is 8.5 inches wide and 4 inches deep. This clock was made circa 1895. Our inventory number is 221140.

This clock is reported to have been once owned by John Pierpont (JP) Morgan the American financier and banker.
