Seller: georgella123 (2,709) 100%, Location: Yeovil, Ships to: Americas, Europe, Asia, AU, Item: 153374625244 Exceptional Antique Longcase Clock. Ellicott London. Flame Mahogany. Dead-Beat A superb George III longcase clock in classic ‘pagoda’ case form by one of the best 18c London makers. Signed “Ellicott London”, this clock dates to between 1760 and 1770 when John Ellicott and his son, Edward, were working in partnership and producing high quality clocks for exclusive clientelle. Ellicott clocks represent the pinnacle of craftmanship at a time when London was fast becoming the trading capital of the World. The mahogany case is in typical London ‘pagoda’ style. The hood has a full ‘bell’ profile with fretted panel in the top section and similar decorative panels following the curve of the arch. The front facing panels exhibit the finest ‘flame’ mahogany figuring as expected in a clock of this quality. The dial is in typical London style with finely matted centre, silvered chapter rings, period spandrels and date aperture. The arch contains a strike/ silent lever. The original steel hands are finely cut and of a pattern typical for this era. The 5 pillar movement is of excellent quality and features a dead-beat escapement. This provides improved accuracy over the more commonly used anchor. It also has the typical Ellicott ‘long’ pendulum crutch (a few cm longer than most longcase clocks would have). This clock is very original and in excellent antique condition. The movement has been fully cleaned and serviced. It has its original brass cased weights and heavy bobbed pendulum. There are keys for the trunk and hood doors, both locks are in working order. This is a big clock! It stands 102 inches to the top of the hood/ finials and ideally would have some clearance above this to show properly. I can deliver and set up to UK mainland within 300 miles of BA22 (Somerset) for £75. Collection and viewing are welcome. I can arrange overseas delivery by established antique carrier, please contact me for a quote if you are interested.
