Seller: oldtempter (1,079) 100%, Location: Lincoln, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 232158778872 A fine Georgian Mahogany London Longcase Clock of excellent quality and fine proportions, by Henry Sanderson of London, dating to around 1770, and in good working order. The case is in Mahogany, and is in very good condition and would appear to have been restored at some time in the past. The long case door with a moulded edge, complete with its lock, and original brass hinges. The base with a moulded front panel, and the clock stands on its original shaped plinth at 90 1/2 inches (230 cm) in total height. The hood with its shaped pediment and surmounted with its set of three finials. The glazed hood door with its brass handle, moulded inner edge and lock (there is a key but it doesn't quite connect properly), and the door is flanked by turned columns at each side with gilded capitals. The brass and silvered arched dial is in lovely condition, the chapter ring having hours represented by Roman Numerals, with an outer minute ring. The silvered and engraved center of the dial with the subsidiary seconds dial above the winding holes, with the non working calendar aperture below the makers engraved signature. The top arch with the highly desirable Strike / silent feature which enables the hour bell strike to be turned on and off at will (ie it could be turned off at night). The dial is finished with its fine quality spandrels, and steel hands. The rack and snail striking, 8 day duration movement is in original condition and in good working order, striking out the hours on a single bell (when the dial is set to "strike"). The clock is set up and keeping excellent time, and as with all old antique clocks it would benefit from a service at some time in the future. The clock comes complete with it's old weights and pendulum complete with its brass bob, along with a winding crank key Dimensions - 90 1/2 inches high (230 cm) Faults; There are a couple of very minor chips/marks as you would expect from a circa 240 year old clock, the hood door has had a repair and there is packing under the right side of the seatboard only. The seatboard is old but I think that too was probably replaced but a long time ago.

This is a deliberate attempt to deceive, these items are all in my possession. They will ask you to send money to them, DO NOT, they do not have any goods to sell, you will never hear from them once you have paid. I only answer to emails that you send to me, and will never send emails to you offering to sell you goods at ridiculously low prices. If you receive one, please let me know and I will report it to eBay immediately. Because of these emails, I have now decided to make all my auctions private auctions so my customers will not be bombarded by these fraudulent people.
