Longcase clock movement by Thomas Bradford, London
8-day movement with latched plates and five pillars, anchor escapement and inside count-wheel striking. The 11-inch brass dial has cherub spandrels, applied chapter and seconds rings and date-work. c.1692
This clock is an example of a typical late 17th century weight-driven longcase clock movement, regulated by an anchor escapement and seconds-beating pendulum. It demonstrates the inventiveness and solid workmanship of London clockmakers of its period.
Thomas Bradford (Junior) was apprenticed to Thomas Applegarth in 1680 and became a freeman of the Clockmakers Company in 1692.
