An unusual oak longcase clock signed Powley, Asby, the ten-inch square brass dial has a raised chapter ring engraved with black Roman numerals and ‘torch’ half-hour markings with the signature ‘Powley, Asby’ either side of VI o’clock. The matted centre has a round, ringed date aperture and there are cast brass four-seasons spandrels to the corners. Interestingly the single hand is made of brass,as seen in other clocks by the Powley family. The thirty-hour movement is a delight,having finely finned pillars and delicate wheelwork for a clock of this nature, with a full outside countwheel for the bell strike. The oak case is fairly primitive and in some ways resembles the early cases made to house lantern clocks, with the short base, flatish concave mouldings above the base and below the hood and a flat-top hood without pillars to the corners and iron butterfly hinges. The trunk has an arched door with a moulded edge
