A rare antique musical bracket clock with animation, by David Evans, London, England, circa 1785. A fine Federal shelf clock.

This fine antique mahogany bracket clock has a molded case with stop fluted pilasters. The wonderful eight day movement with engraved back plate, has a selector for melody on eight bells and/or a mechanical cuckoo with bellows. The dial has a lunette painted with a lakeside red barn and an animated door that opens as a carved wood song bird emerges. The composite dial has an enamel clock face with applied gilt Rococo spandrels and is signed "Higgs y / Diego Evans / Londres". Like other clock makers of his time, David Evans and his partner Peter Higgs [Pedro] produced clocks for foreign markets. This example was produced for the Spanish market as evidenced by the Spanish wording on the dial and selectors.
