This mid-18th-century Dutch musical bracket clock is in pristine condition— both the mechanics and the body of the clock are emblematic of the era's exemplary craftsmanship. Encased in elegant ebony and accentuated with brass mounts, this horological masterpiece offers a selection of tunes or chimes to mark the passing of time.

The dial is a work of art, showcasing rotating night sky imagery to display the phase of the moon alongside delicate maritime scenes, complemented by sophisticated engravings and metalwork that enhance its visual appeal. The clock features subdials that provide the option to choose between five different songs, and silencers for both the chimes and melodies. Additionally, a date window is positioned at the 6 o’clock mark. Two convenient pull cords are integrated to engage the music or chimes, enabling this distinguished timepiece to announce the time upon request. This musical masterpiece plays on both the hour and half-hour mark, with the half-hour mark chiming the anticipated hour. For ease of transport over short distances, a pendulum hook has been incorporated to ensure the clock’s safe movement.
