This superb solid mahogany regulator is a fine example of Wm Forbes clock making skills. A near copy of a similar piece made circa 1850, regulators like the Birkdale were so accurate they were used to check the accuracy of other less precise clocks.

This outstanding craftsman made clock with its curl-veneered crest would be treasured addition to any home. Size: 47¼"x14 1/8"x8 5/8" (1200x360x230mm)
