Seller: shaftesbury24 (378) 100%, Location: Shaftesbury, Ships to: Free Local Pickup, Item: 153836057297 A very attractive inlaid Longcase clock of excellent proportions. This very pleasing clock is by John Calcott of Cotton in 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. Undoubtedly not a marriage as the inlays on the hood door match the inlay on the beautifully figured trunk door and base. The Calcott family were notable clockmakers and in particular for the use of inlays, this clock is probably from John Calcott senior as it has has a first period dial. The square 12 inch dial with rose painted spandrels has seconds and working date aperture. The hood has reeded columns and a caddy top. John Calcott ,Cotton on the dial is only visible with the use of a UV light. This clock is in unrestored condition and there are signs of early worm mainly to the backboard but long since gone. A new click spring and line were fitted in 2017 by a horologist and at the same time the clock was serviced. The clock comes with its winder also trunk door key and a hood door key, although this in not operative. Please see images as they represent the condition of the clock and for the past few years it has been working and keeping excellent time.
