Seller: clockbuster (685) 100%, Location: Sheffield, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 263573763721 MAHOGANY LONGCASE GRANDFATHER CLOCK - William Brownlie, Hamilton MAHOGANY LONGCASE GRANDFATHER CLOCK - William Brownlie, Hamilton Click images to enlarge Description Early painted dial longcase clocks have always been a particular favourate of mine as the hand painted dials can be quite exquisite and should not be confused with the mass produced factory examples produced in the 19th Century . The early ones were the very height of fashion and were in fact more expensive than their brass contemporaries. Unfortunately it has been a long time since I have seen one of sufficient quality and proportions to compete with the finer examples in the longcase market. This is certainly such a clock. Having been sourced from a discerning private collector this clock has lovely slim proportions highlighted by very fine inlay to both the front and sides.The front door and base centre panel are of fiddle back mahogany and I particularly like the unusual feature of a swept base. The 13 inch arched dial has corners decorated to replicate brass spandrels and is signed in the arch by the maker.The centre has subsidiary dials for seconds and date and carries two mythical Phoenix birds. The dial is in perfect condition with the black work being refreshed but the groundwork is original. It is mounted directly to the well made 8 day rack striking movement with repeat facility . It strikes the hours on a bell and is complete with its original pendulum and typical Scottish oval weights.William Brownlie is recorded at working from 184 to 1800 This clock is in beautiful condition having a deep shine and excellent colour.Like all antiques there are the odd age related marks but nothing that will deter the most discerning buyer. Prospective buyers are urged to view this clock to see how nice it really is. The overall condition is outstanding with only the odd age related mark as can be expected. At the present time this clock represents exceptional value for money . The clock is running perfectly having been subject to a recent service It is an impressive piece being 7 ft 7 inches tall to the top of the hood,21 inches at its widest point and 10 inches deep.The centre of the trunk is only 14 inches wide. I would encourage interested parties to view the clock and my limited photographic skill do it no favours at all and certainly do not show the quality of the finish. My direct contact details are at the bottom of most of my listings should any interested party wish to get in touch.

If you wish to use your own courier I will do all I can to assist. I only charge actual costs incurred for shipping BUT I will use a large box with plenty of packing to avoid damage and this will make shipping (particulary to foreign countries) a little more expensive due to volumetric weight. Custom made boxes,bubble wrap and peanuts all cost money and the cost of these materials will be added to the cost of shipping.For example a Vienna wall clock costs me £15 in materials.I do not charge for my time for packing. Every care will be taken when packing but no liability will be accepted for damage by the couriers and it must be remembered that it is virtually impossible to guarrantee 100 percent that a peice of glass may not be damaged on the odd occasion. Insurance is a difficult and expensive area with respect to antiques and usually has a low ceiling that is why I use recognised tracked and signed for couriers and do not insure seperately.If you wish to seperately insure your item I will do all I can to assist but the responsibility to arrange the said insurance is with the buyer Terms of Sale It is requested that all buyers contact me within 24 hours and pay in full within 7 days unless a prior arrangement is made Please do not agree to buy something unless you intend to pay.
