Georgian Regency English Satinwood Wheel Barometer with Clock.
This is a large and imposing instrument, made without any compromises in time or expense. The fine satinwood veneers are outlined with ebony and boxwood stringing. The engraving on the dial and ancillary plates is of the best quality of the period.
Quite unusually the clock is situated at the base of the case, a 30 hour fusee timepiece with verge and balance escapement by the watchmaker De Fontaine of London, numbered 557.
