The Barber family are a well regarded family of clockmakers working in the 17th and 18th centuries. The clock is happily ticking away but has not had it cleaned and serviced at time of listing but may be over the coming weeks. The hands, second, minute, Hour hands, pulleys, seat board etc are all original. If we start with the hood, this has a flat top finished with deep moulded cornice. Lovely turned full columns flank the hood door. There are nice simple back splats. If we then move down to the trunk this has beautifully simple full-length door. The door is opened via a simple brass knob and catch. The base is raised on bracket feet. The eight-day movement with makers name of 'Barber, Winster', striking the hour has a square brass face. It also has a subsidiary second dial and date aperture. The four corners are adorned with cherub spandels depicting the four seasons, whilst the centre incorporates beautiful engraved swags typical of his work. This renowned maker has a book devoted to his work which is 'Jonas Barber Clockmaker of Winster by B.W.Cave-Browne-Cave'. Jonas Barber was one of the few clockmakers who numbered his clocks starting in 1748. Some of the clock number are listed in the book devoted to him. The number of this particular movement is 156 as can be seen from the photograph. From the number referencing in the book it would date this clock to around 1752 and it is also noted that Jonas Barber senior and his son would have been at the hight of their working capacity during this period (namely between 1749 and 1758). DIMENSIONS: The approximate MAXIMUM dimensions are: - 77.25 inches (196 cm) high to top of clock - 22 inches (56 cm) across wide across the hood - 12.75 inches (32.5 cm) wide across the trunk - 17.75 inches (45 cm) wide across the base. - 11.25 inches (28.5 cm) wide across the base.
