  The hood consists, of molded swan necks over a mahogany inlaid veneer having a chequered stringing.

  Reeded pillars are to each side of the cross banded hood door, which frames an exquisite hand painted Wilson style dial, of strawberry flowers, fruit and foliage (see Gallery Pictures Below)

  An 8-day weight driven movement, of a four pillar type, supports the dial which has a subsidiary seconds dial above and calendar aperture below the original hand cut, fettled and blued steel hands, brass ringed winding holes are to each side of same.

   A full length, quarter sawn, oak and mahogany cross banded door with a conch shell design inlay, is to the centre, this is flanked by quartered and reeded inset pillars to each side of the case. All the above sits on a molded razor edged base which also has a decorative molded shaped front panel.

  The brass movement strikes the hour on a bell, and like the case has been fully restored and serviced.

  The patina of this case is excellent and is a credit to the original cabinet maker that sourced the timber used in its construction.

The above clock has been beautifully restored, stands 84" (2133mm) in height and carries a 12 month guarantee.
