I try to buy local clocks where I can, this one was made less than 10 miles away. Henry Ward was a talented engineer, an inventive clock maker. He has a regulator in the British Museum, he won awards for his innovations and complicated clocks. He was born in 1776 and died in 1815, dates of significance, his short span covered a period of great change. This little clock is rather more humble than his other clocks I've seen before, but like all in business you make what your customers will buy. This was probably for below stairs and the customer may have bought one of his grander clocks for the main house. I pick it up next weekend, I have permission to use the pics. It has no weights or pendulum. The hood is associated but may form the basis for a new case. It doesn't have a Huygens continuous loop system but separate drives for time and alarm, more like a cuckoo clock.
