20. LATE 17th CENTURY BRACKET CLOCK
Wednesday Evening , 6:30p-10:30p $80
This type of clock was originally produced to sit on a raised wall bracket or a shelf when earlier movements were driven by hanging weights. The same style continued when later spring-driven movements were developed.
From a prepared cutting list of timber, glass and a detailed brass clock face the students will construct the box and mitre mouldings around it to form the base and domed top.
The face and hands will be fitted, guaranteed to show the right time twice per day (there is no clock movement).
The front panel will be glazed and fitted, and a brass handle and the hardware attached.
Completion is likely in class however a detailed booklet is provided to complete the piece at home.
All tools and supplies will be provided however please feel free to bring small tools and any optical equipment you may require.
Approx. size in miniature 1" wide x 5/8” deep x 1 3/8” high (25mm w x 16mm d x 35mm h)
