Seller: shaftesbury24 (378) 100%, Location: Shaftesbury, Ships to: Free Local Pickup, Item: 153849232264 A very attractive caddy topped inlaid Longcase clock C1760 of excellent proportions. Keeping very good time and striking on the hour this very pleasing clock is by John Calcott of Cotton, Shropshire. John Calcott is mentioned and one of his dials is illustrated in "Antique British Clocks" by Brian Loomes page 38 and an inlaid clock on page 41. The Calcott family were notable clockmakers and in particular for the use of inlays, this clock is almost certainly by John Calcott senior. Undoubtedly not a marriage as the inlays on the hood door match the inlay on the beautifully figured trunk door with fan inlays to the corners and repeating on the base. The square 12 inch first period dial has rose painted spandrels with working seconds and date aperture. The hood has reeded columns and the trunk has inlaid canted corners. A new click spring and line were fitted in 2017 by a horologist and at the same time the clock was oiled. The clock comes with its winder also a working trunk door key and a hood door key although this one in not operative. Please see images as they represent the condition of the clock. Standing on bracket feet the height is only 199 cm approx so will fit nicely into most homes. Buyer collects or will work with your courier. I would however recommend using a courier with knowledge of transporting clocks. Depending on your location I could set the clock up, please email with post code. Payment cash on collection, bank transfer, or PayPal.Many thanks.
