|Description of the item|
A pretty clock in a very nicely paniated oak case by Marriot of Northampton. Great for a home in the country. Good proportions and only 211cm tall. '30 hour' movement (winding once a day in a few seconds), it strikes the hours on a clear bell.
|Information about the maker|
We estimated the clock was made circa 1820 which probably makes it the early work of William Marriot Senior who is recorded as working from 1824-41. (William Junior is recorded 1841-69).
They were probably related to an earlier clockmaking family in nearby Oundle.
|Dimensions & Specification|
30 hour movement, striking the hours on a bell.
Wind once a day by simply pulling on a chain.
12" painted dial with sad-mouth date indicator
Dims: 211 cm tall with the pediment. (199cm with a flat top). Max width 49.3cm
The dial has had just the lightest restoration, It had survived remarkably well and has an attractive 'cracked glaze' to the ground.
Oak case has a deep wax finish with genuine aged patination.
Movement cleaned and serviced.
|Cost of Restoration|
Non required. We are aware that pediment (on the top of the hood) may not be to everyone's tastes, but it is the correct form for the region. If it was a deal breaker, it could be removed sensitively.
