Description of the item

This is a very genuine and quite early longcase clock which shows many features very typical of the period and region. It is of very good quality and is in very original condition. (Guaranteed not a marriage). Complete with its original 'caddy' top, we restored the clock from an untouched condition and it will be supplied with a full photograph record.
The blue glass panel in the hood is not as blue as it appears! The lighting has caused it to appear much brighter than it actually is. Pls ask for photos).

Condition Report

Fully prepared for sale in excellent order. We have a photographic record to show the condition prior to restoration, but basically only the 'verre eglomise' (panel to the hood) and the feet have been replaced. The eglomise panel was painted perfectly by Robert Loomes' staff to an original pattern (details available). The silvering on the dial is a little discoloured and can be redone if desired. Excellent patination to the case, which was brought back to life with hand waxing (not repolished).
