Seller: sammatgeo (216) 100%, Location: Weston-super-Mare, Ships to: Free Local Pickup, Item: 283140607970 Still downsizing a large collection of long case clocks.Started way back in the seventies when clocks were dearer than they are now . This is a well proportioned oak and mahogany cased eight day long case “grandfather”clock. It is just over 7” high. The base is 18 1/2” wide and the trunk width is 15”. It was made by Thomas Gadsby of Leicester, who, according to Baillie was working between 1815 and 1826. That fits because at this time the dials had Arabic numerals before reverting to Roman a few years later. So this clock is about 200 years old, It ticks away happily and rings out the hours on the hour. The movement started life with its dial and I am certain that both began their life in the case they are in now. There is no sign of any modifications or packing where the seat board is placed on the trunk. The movement has recently been stripped , cleaned and oiled. The back of the case is original, so is the plinth at the base. So there it is. A fine old piece of social history that combines cabinet making, engineering and art work all in one item. Please come and view The starting price is its reserve. Cash on collection preferred Features: 8-Day
