The most exquisite hand-chiseled ormolu case houses this outstanding mantel clock by Benjamin Lewis Vulliamy of London. This mid-19th century timepiece boasts a single chain fusee movement with a half dead beat anchor escapement. An intricate motif of shells, acanthus scrolls and a central mask distinguish this outstanding Vulliamy clock. Benjamin Vulliamy (1780-1854) was a third generation clock maker, and his family served as the official Clock Makers to the Crown for 112 years. Though primarily known for their timepieces, by the beginning of the 19th century, the business encompassed multiple facets of interior decorating and design, so much so that Benjamin became known as "the Prince's furniture man." Vulliamy contracted craftsmen from Paris for much of the bronze work found in his pieces, including this mantel clock. 

The movement is signed "Vulliamy/London/1117" and the silvered dial is marked "Vulliamy London"

Circa 1840
