Regency Style Lancet Clock
A wonderful specimen with an abundance of elegance is this Regency style Lancet Clock shown below. For those of you who do not know the term "lancet" in conjunction with a clock, the term refers to a type of mantel clock where the case is shaped to an acute point at its top. This clock, circa 1890, is in excellent condition with a stunning bright-white enamel face decorated with gilded brass hands (see photograph below). The overall form of this piece is particularly eye catching with crisp edges and expertly inlaid floral details. A rare treat such as this is timeless in every sense.
