Peter Walker London longcase clock c1710-15.
Peter Walker was apprenticed to Andrew Savory in 1681 and subsequently worked at Wild Street End, London (round the corner from Drury Lane). He is known to have been working in London in 1720s and died in Amsterdam in 1730. The Worshipful Company of Clockmakers has a useful website with information about early London makers
The dial shows many of the features associated with early 18th century clocks: The very well defined corner spandrels are Later London Angels supporting a crown type which was popular between 1700–1710. The matted central zone is engraved more moderately than earlier styles. The Chapter ring is engraved with fleur de lyses half hour markers, supplemented by quarter hour markers and minute divisions.
Like all good early London clocks, there are five pillars between the movement plates: They are of the early finned type. The inside locking plate/count wheel is situated between the great wheel and the drum rather than behind the great wheel. So this is a transition type between the outside count-wheel of the very early plated longcase movements and the last of the count-wheels. Rack striking became universal in the early 1700s although the London makers tended to be rather conservative.
The oak case is of highly ornate deep carving.
The entire clock movement, dial and case have been professionally restored and has a 2 year warranty.
