A fine shield dial tavern clock in a good state of preservation and very similar to two tavern clocks illustrated on pages 66 and 68 of "English Dial Clocks" by Ronald Rose (both of which were handled by us).

The case is of the shield dial pattern in which the base of the dial meets the top moulding of the trunk and the foot of the case is a simple ogee shape. The trunk door retains the edge moulding of earlier clocks and the gilt lacquer decoration is of foliage, flowers and human figures set within an oriental landscape. There are chrysanthemums to the trunk sides.

The signed dial is made up of three oak planks and has simple gilt leaf decoration to the six corners of the moulded edge. The gilt bordered chapter ring with fine hour Roman numerals and double minute circle is set within the surround and central section; the maker's signature is written below VI. The elaborate pierced brass hands are original which is very rare in these clocks.

The 8 Day A frame movement has its original anchor escapement and long pendulum.

John Everell is known to have been working in the middle years of the 18th century. Baillie also mentions a longcase clock made by this maker which is in a castle in Germany.
