Seller: georgella123 (2,468) 100%, Location: Yeovil, Ships to: GB, Item: 152325533358 Condition: All fully working and in good antique condition, see pictures and description for more detail., Age: Antique, Pre-1900, Sub-Type: Grandfather, Material: Oak, Type: Longcase/ Grandfather Clock, Features: 8-Day, Details: Stunning Pagoda Longcase Clock, 8 Bell Quarter Chiming. Jn Bentley Stockton. A lovely example of an earlier (Georgian) clock which was modified in Victorian times to incorporate a 3 train quarter striking musical movement. The oak case is absolutely stunning with slim proportions and a large ‘pagoda’ hood with sound frets to the sides and front. The chapter ring is signed for Jn Bentley, Stockton. The movement is of massive construction with very thick plates, the weights are correspondingly heavy! The clock chimes each quarter on 8 bells tuned to the key of A major. The tune appears to be a variation of the St Michael chime. There is also the option of a 4 bell Westminster chime from the lever at the lower front of the dial. The hours are struck on a gong. The dial is typically Georgian in style with silvered chapter ring, matted centre, spandrels to the corners and arch and subsidiary seconds dial. Hands are blued steel. The condition is generally very good for the age. The dial is clear and bright with good silvering to the chapter and subsidiary seconds rings. The movement has been cleaned and serviced and all runs well. The case shows its age in places but is basically sound. It has some splits towards the rear of the base and a vertical shrinkage crack to the base front (see pictures). The colour is a nice deep golden oak with much use of figured wood for the front panels. Both trunk and hood have locks in the London style - both are working with keys present. Dimensions are: height 95 inches, width 21 inches, depth just over 10 inches. The dial aperture is just under 12 inches by 17 into the arch. The BIN price includes free delivery and setup to UK mainland. Collection and viewing are welcome. I can also arrange overseas shipping through a reputable packaging and shipping broker, please contact me for a quote if you are interested in this. All in all a stunning looking clock with the added attraction and prestige of musical quarter striking.
