Cast silvered sight-ring to the 12” round painted Roman dial with subsidiary seconds and signed ‘Benjamin Lautier/Bath’. Finely cut blued steel hands. Eight day movement with anchor escapement and striking the hours on a bell. Brass pendulum and brass cased weights. 6’ 4” (193 cm.) high Benjamin Lautier is recorded working in Bath from 1790-1848. He was succeeded by his widow Charlotte. This clock displays many of the fine proportions and qualities to those found in London .In British Longcase Clocks (p. 161, figure 214) Derek Roberts illustrates a London longcase clock by William Pitt, London, in an almost identical case. This is not surprising as London and Bath were well connected at this period and Benjamin Lautier had a partnership making ships chronometers with Vigne, a fine London maker. 76" (193 cm.) High
