A small solid oak longcase clock. It has a pagoda shaped hood, with brass side finials, turned hood pillars, a square 12" dial, and a long door with a slim base. The silvered dial is engraved by the maker Ford of Arundel and has fine cut steel hands. It has a 30 hour duration movement that sounds the hours on a bell. ( The duration can be extended to about 3 days if the strike is stopped).

John Ford was born in 1735, married in 1760 and died c 1811.

He is listed as working in 1750 in Arundel, but in January 1755 he was apprenticed to Samuel Burfield clockmaker of Arundel, for 2 years and the fee of £10.

During his working life he is known to have taken at least two apprentices:-
Robert Hardwell, apprentice watchmaker in March 1765, for 7 years and the fee of £5. 5 shillings.
Richard Longhurst, apprentice clock and watch maker in June 1766 for 3 years and the fee of £10.00.

A 30 hour long case clock with a silvered dial by John Ford is in Arundel museum.
The case has been re-polished and waxed, the movement has been serviced in our own workshops and is guaranteed for 12 months. If you would like a video clip of this clock striking please email us.
