A particularly small, slim and well proportioned strike fusee bracket clock, by Pike, Eltham, dated c.1810-1820. The classic mahogany lancet topped case has delicate geometric boxwood stringing and the case benefits from having all of its original brasswork. The 4-inch convex painted Roman dial is signed for PIKE, ELTHAM.
The dial has in the past been restored very well and has steel Breguet-style hands. The eight day movement has two fusee trains and strikes the hours on a bell.
