Jacob Hendel


Dial signed ‘Jacob Hendel / Carlisle’. Painted iron dial with moon dial, seconds subdial above center and calendar off the center. The strike fly is engraved ‘J & B Hendel / 1’, thus indicating that this was the first movement Jacob and Bernard produced together. The movement, however, actually appears to be the work of Bernard Hendel. Walnut Federal case. Private collection. Circa 1810. Height 8’ 1/4”.
