A very impressive George II period figured walnut London longcase clock. The case is veneered with highly figured walnut of fine colour and patination and is original throughout. Standing on a double plinth there is a panelled base and moulded trunk door. The pull forward hood is flanked by turned columns with brass capitals and bases.

The 13in arched dial has an applied chapter ring with cherub and delicate foliate spandrels. The centre is finely matted with an applied seconds ring, an aperture for the date and with ringed winding holes. The arch has dolphin spandrels applied around the signature boss and strike/silent lever. The hands are finely wrought and of blued-steel.

The movement is of 8-day duration and strikes the hours on a single bell.
