                      A FINE AND RARE CHARLES I BRASS ‘FIRST PERIOD’ LANTERN CLOCK OF LARGER PROPORTIONS

                      Est: £18,000 - £25,000

                      A FINE AND RARE CHARLES I BRASS 'FIRST PERIOD' LANTERN CLOCK OF LARGER PROPORTIONS ATTRIBUTED TO THE WORKSHOP OF WILLIAM BOWYER, THE DIAL SIGNED FOR CLAUDIUS MALBRANCK, LONDON, CIRCA 1630The trains now with endless-rope winding on chains and anchor escapement regulated by seconds pendulum, the strike train sounding the hours on a bell mounted above the frame via an iron countwheel with overlift provided by a hoop wheel cut with a single slot, the dial finely engraved with stylised hatched foliate scrollwork laid out in a quartered design to centre, within applied 6.375 inch narrow silvered Roman numeral chapter ring incorporating slender cruciform half hour markers, with fine substantial sculpted steel hand and foliate engraved infill matching that of the centre occupying the quadrants with the lower flanking signature Claudius Malbranck engraved to the bottom margin, the frame with finely turned generous Doric column corner posts beneath distinctive shouldered vase 'cup and cover' finials with cavetto waists, the front and sides applied with symmetrical scroll pierced cast brass armorial frets with the front incorporating foliate engraved detail including grotesque dolphin masks, beneath domed bell bearer capped with a conforming slightly larger vase finial, with brass side doors and the rear with iron backplate, on turned tapered 'acorn' feet.40cm (15.75ins) high, 15cm (6ins) wide, 18.5cm (7.25ins) deep.Literature:Illustrated and described in Bruce, W.F. EARLY ENGLISH LANTERN CLOCKS 1600-1700, Lewes 2013, pages 16-17 with a detail of the dial on page 6.Claudius Malbranck is noted in Loomes, Brian Loomes, Brian Clockmakers of Britain 1286-1700 as most probably the original owner of the present clock with the surname Malbranck (sometimes Malbranq) being that of French Huguenot (Walloon) family who lived in London at least 1628-35. Bill Bruce and John Hooper in EARLY ENGLISH LANTERN CLOCKS 1600-1700 also note that Malbranck was most likely the original owner and, suggest that the current clock was almost certainly made by William Bowyer. Perhaps the most obvious single piece of evidence to support attribution to Bowyer is the design of the frets used. Although they appear to be outwardly similar to those used on other, smaller, clocks they are almost unique with the only other known example to have matching castings being a clock made by Bowyer for the Brewers' Company clock of 1632 which was sold at Bonhams, London, sale of FINE CLOCKS 16th December 2020 (lot 77) for £56,500. In addition to the frets used, the dial engraving of the Brewers' clock also exhibits notable similarities with that of the current lot with foliate designs executed in quartered segments. Another clock by Bowyer, this time made for the Earl of Rothes, (see White, George English Lantern Clocks page 44, Figure II/5) also has very closely related engraving by the same hand. George White likens this rare style of engraving to that seen on contemporary silverwork and provides an image of a lid of a silver casket attributed to Jan Gerritsz in support of this observation (page 68, Figure II/58). Incidentally the Earl of Rothes clock was also sold by Bonhams, London, in their sale of FINE CLOCKS 11th December 2019 (lot 68) for £43,812.50.In addition to the frets and dial engraving the movement has many features typical of Bowyer's work, most notably the 'hump' cast into the rear movement bar left hand arm to allow for the locking detent arbor pivots, finely executed wheelwork with tapered arbors, decorative blade hammer spring opposing a very substantial stop and iron countwheel. The frame utilises the same casting as the Earl of Rothes clock and is very finely finished with precise turnings and canted filed edges to the bell support straps.William Bowyer is recorded in Loomes, Brian Clockmakers of Britain 1286-1700 as the son of Ralph Bowyer (yeoman of Warfield Berkshire) who is believed to have been married to Alice Mansworth in 1590. William was probably born around this time and by 1616 was a member of the Pewterers' Company when he took-in Thomas Taylor (son of Ralph Taylor, a milliner from Halesowen, Shropshire) as an apprentice. Bowyer took-in no less than five further apprentices prior to the formation of the Clockmakers' Company in 1631, including John Pennock (son of William Pennock of Guisborough, Yorkshire) in 1620. Although he subscribed £5 towards its charter and was made free of the City in 1630, William Bowyer did not apparently join the Worshipful Company on its establishment the following year.Bowyer is thought to have been first married to Margery Barlow of Litchfield, Staffordshire, however, by 1631 he was married to Prudence with whom he had five children (three of which sadly died in infancy). By 1638 Bowyer was living in the parish of St. Andrew Undershaft, he took-in Joseph Jackson (through Thomas Dawson) as apprentice that year and during the following decade took-on at least four more, this time through the Clockmakers' Company. One of these apprentices was Nathanial Allen (probably around 1641/2); Allen subsequently married a Phillipa Bowyer in 1646 hence became related to William through marriage.In 1640 William Bowyer was invited to become an Assistant of the Clockmakers' Company, however it appears that he was reluctant to serve the Company as in July 1642 he gave 'a great chamber clock' in return for excusal from any further duties. Nevertheless he became an Assistant in 1651 and a Warden in 1653 the year of his death.The present clock is particularly notable in that it has survived in fine, original untouched condition. At some point the original verge escapement and balance has been substituted for anchor escapement regulated by seconds pendulum and the winding converted to Huygens's design with an endless chain. Most importantly the latter has not resulted in the strike train being reversed, this has been achieved by adding a very discreet small intermediate wheel to the going train front movement bar, between the pinion of report and the hour wheel. Otherwise the clock is very much the same as when it would have left the Leadenhall Street workshop of William Bowyer but with light wear and the build-up of patination resulting in very pleasing mellow colouring that can only come with age.

He was succeeded by his son, Jaques, and son-in-law, Jean-Samuel Rossell, who continued the business under the name 'Jean-Francois Bautte et Cie'. Cleret is recorded by Baillie as working in Paris 1812-15, however a maker of this name, who described himself as an 'Eleve de Robin' (pupil of Robin), is known to have been working in 1829.
