Seller: clockbroker (110) 100%, Location: Mansfield, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 122227309093 MAHOGANY INLAID PAGODA LONGCASE GRANDFATHER CLOCK - Brass Dial This is a very nice mahogany cased longcase clock of excellent quality and proportions dating from the second half of the 18th Century. The `12 inch arched brass dial bears the name of the maker Richard Smith , Newport (Isle of Wight ) .This listed maker is recorded as working at this time . He also worked in nearby Portstmouth. I have owned several Isle of Wight clocks over the years and they have certain characteristics found in London clocks of the period . This particular example has a well made 5 pillar 8 day weight driven movement typical of London manufacture but without strike / silent. The well made Mahogany case is again of London form but slightly different in design and veneer. This pagoda topped case is veneered in good mahogany with rosewood cross banding and boxwood stringing. Unusually this is repeated down the sides of the case. The whole effect is very pleasing. The hood is surmounted by well finished flambau finials and the sides are glazed to allow the mechanism to be seen. The movement is currently being restored by a professional Horologist and will be sold in perfect working order. The dial has been cleaned and re silvered and presents very nicely.The steel hands are original. This clock is 94 inches tall ,the trunk is only 13 inches wide and the widest point 17 3/4 inches wide and 9 inches deep. The condition is excellent having been subject to an older restoration . The finish has a lovely mellow sheen rather than a highly polished surface and although there is the odd expected age related mark it is ready to go straight into the home A personal visit is encouraged as my photographs are not particularly good. UK buyers are requested alternative means of payment to Pay Pal if possible.
