The clock is complete having been fully renovated and restored and the movement fully overhauled and comes with a weight and pendulum. The pictures are brighter in most circumstances than the clock case or movement shows. The case with old wood-worm damage which has been treated and stabilised. THE DIAL: 100% mint, the clock dial measures 10 x 10 inches high. The solid brass dial is original to the movement. The dial with engraving to the dial centre, and to the corneers, with mythical animals, flowers and leafy decoration. The dial centre is beautifully engraved in a cornicopia of interesting features, and with a date box above the 6 o'clock in full working order. The narrow silvered chapter-ring with Roman numerals for the hours and Arabics for the minute around the outside edge, and fleur-de-lys half-hour markers. The dial with nicely made blued steel hands for the hour and minute, both are in fine order. THE MOVEMENT : 100% mint, with a 30-hour strking substantial clock-maker made movement. The clock runs for a full 30-hour between windings and most unsually strikes the hours on a large vertical bell. This is a very substantial and unusual movement with five brass pillars all latchd to the front plate and all in good working order and overhauled and fully serviced. The clock movement with the striking arbors set into unusual side plates. The clock is supplied with a long pendulum with brass bob, and weight, and sits on an old oak seat-board. The clock is chain driven, with a later brass pulley, with anchor escapement and countwheel strike on an enormous bell. The movement with man individual features, clearly the master-piece made by this maker for his own home or a prominent local person. THE CASE : 100%, the restored burr walnut case on an pine carcase, with caddy top, stands 86 cm high. The hood with sealed door which is glazed to the front, and also to the sides, with a later green silk backed fret and lovely barley sugar twist columns. The hood slides forward to gain access to the movement and hand-setting as required. The case with old wood-worm damage which has been treated and stabilised, old tiny holes visible, as typical for items from this period. The hood with nicely carved lower supports beneath the base board structure. The sides of the case in nice order, slightly bowed over 300 years, with some movement of the veneers, a great color and patina, nicely conserved. The carcase of the case is beautifully toned and aged pine, clearly original, with some restoration as expected for a clock of this period. The case with hole to the rear back-board for a large clout nail to support the clock on a wall. THE WEIGHT & PENDULUM: 100% mint, the clock comes with a nice lead weight, and a brass faced pendulum. The clock has recently been fully over-hauled and keeps excellent time and strikes the hour on a large bell.
