I am a collector who is downsizing and selling a number of clocks, rocking horses and pictures. This is a great example of an honest Home Counties longcase, from a well known family of clockmakers, with a very attractive dial and particularly interesting automata feature, which is highly desirable on these clocks.

It has also had an oil service this week. Very attractive silvered brass dial, showing seconds and the date with engraved scrolls.Rocking Father Time against a starry sky in an arch is a very attractive and unusual feature.The oak case has a long trunk door complete with key, plain base with double plinth.Attractive hood with brass capped pillars, blind sound frets and flat top, and locking lever to the trunk.Dimensions: Height 81", Max Width 18", Depth 10", Dial 12" Wide x 1^" to top of the arch.
