The brass movement has 4 pillars, cut out plates, anchor escapement and retains most of its original wheel and metal work. It strikes the hours on a large bell via an outside countwheel.
The 10” brass dial has cherub and crown spandrels, a silvered chapter ring with ½ hour markers and retains its original hand.
The clock although unsigned is probably by Henry Pearson of Dore, Derbyshire (see note). The centre engraving with 2 doves and foliage is identical to other work by him.
Henry Pearson was probably born at Dronfield Derbyshire in 1703. He worked in Dore Derbyshire until around 1750.
Note: Dronfield and Dore are a few miles south of Sheffield ( Yorks) on the edge of the Peak District national park. Dronfield and Dore were in Derbyshire until 1934 when the boundaries were changed and are now in South Yorks.
