Not on view

Daniel Delander was the most distinguished member of a long-active family of London clockmakers. Apprenticed in 1692 to Charles Halstead, he later became a journeyman assistant in the workshop of Thomas Tompion. By 1706 he had set up his own establishment in Devereux Court, Fleet Street. His clocks and watches are known for both their inventiveness and fine craftsmanship. This table clock, or bracket clock, as the type has been commonly called, is unusual owing to its large size and elegant proportions. The eight-day springdriven movement can be adjusted to strike the hours or remain silent.
