A fine George II period burr ash Longcase clock. The veneered case is of the finest proportions, made using burr ash veneers which are richly patinated. The pull forward hood is flanked by turned columns with gilt wooden capitals and has a carved wooden sound fret.

The dial of this clock is of simple elegant design with crown and sceptre spandrels in the corners and a matted centre with engraving around the date aperture which is set above VI. The chapter ring has bold Roman numerals, an outer minute circle with Arabic numerals at five minute intervals and inner quarter hour markings. The winding holes are ringed and the blued steel hands are finely wrought and pierced.

The well-made, substantial movement has 5 finned pillars. The anchor escapement is controlled by a seconds-beating pendulum and the hour-striking mechanism has rack strike. The movement is complete with its brass cased weights and pendulum bob.
Henry Fish is recorded on page 268 of Brian Loomes’s Watchmakers and Clockmakers of the World: 21st Century Edition as working at the Royal Exchange between 1736 and his death in 1774.
