A fine 18th century eight day bracket or table clock by Thomas Coxworthy, with a brass bound flame mahogany veneered case and silvered dial. The arched silvered dial has both Roman and Arabic numerals, which at its centre has the smaller calendar dial, and above, a strike/silent dial.
The eight day movement has a verge escapement - a feature of early clocks - and also strikes the hour on a bell. The brass backplate of the movement is beautifully engraved with foliate decoration, a mark of quality and attention to detail.

By Thomas Coxworthy of Plymouth of whom little is known aside from the fact his workshop was based at Plymouth Dock. English, c.1770.

Provenance: Dean's Farmhouse, Stratford-sub-Castle, Salisbury.
