Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
The slender case is oak with mahogany crossbanding round the doors and base panel which contrasts strongly against the paler oak. The trunk has quarter columns to flank the long door with shaped top, typical of the region. The hood has a freeze of verre eglomise, black glass backpainted with a gilt scroll design.
A very similar case is described in detail in Brian Loomes' Grandfather Clocks and their Cases, which he describes as "a neat example of a high-quality mid-century case from the north-west".
The 12-inch dial has a wide silvered chapter ring, the brass centre is matted with cross-hatching, and a deep crescent shaped dial aperture and recessed rosette for Winstanley's signature.
30-hour chain driven movement, striking on a bell.
