More Information

An attractive pale mahogany clock, the case shows many features typical of its location and period.

It has an "ogee" shape to the trunk door top, quarter-reeded columns to the trunk, canted corners to the base and blocks to the rear of the swan-necks on the hood's top. The painted dial has delicate Roman numerals, cut steel hands and a rotating moonphase disc behind painted globes to the arch. Another Northern feature is the pair of birds painted to the dial's centre. The dial corners have a restrained gilt design.

It is fitted with an eight-day movement with, most unusually for a London longcase, a rotating moonphase disc to the arch.

More Information

An elegant early 18th century longcase clock in an arabesque marquetry case and the interesting movement with maintaining power.

This clock was made during the age of extreme elegance of furniture design and is in a splendid marquetry case which is very largely original. It has two small "chimney" pieces which I believe these to be later. The dial is also fully latched to the front plate. The chapter ring is signed "Jno Aylward de Guilford".
