A fine Queen Anne period figured walnut longcase clock of month duration with square dial and caddy top by this well known maker.

The case is veneered with highly figured walnut of excellent colour and patination. The pull-forward caddy top hood is flanked by turned pillars with brass capitals. The caddy top is original and is surmounted by two gilt flambeaux finials.

The 12 inch square dial has an applied chapter ring with cherubs holding a crown corner spandrels. The centre is finely matted with an applied seconds ring and an aperture to view the day of the month. The blued steel hands are finely pierced and the maker’s signature – Claudius Duchesne, London - is engraved on the chapter ring between V and VII.

The five finned pillar month movement has outside countwheel strike with the hours sounded on a bell. As one would expect from a maker of Duchesne’s stature, the movement is of the highest quality with fine wheelwork and thick plates and the case is very similar to those of Tompion and Quare.
