The case is veneered in flame mahogany which has now achieved a wonderful colour and excellent patination. The clock stands on ogee moulded feet with a quarter veneered plinth. The stunning book match veneer door is flanked by canted columns with blind fret work above. The hood with its dental cornice swan neck pediment and central shield sits on an moulded ogee shaped arched glazed door.

The four pillar eight day movement striking the hours on a bell has a twelve inch silvered and brass dial and date aperture. The arch has a painted hunting scene and is signed on a silvered strip 'Joshua Harrocks, Lancaster'.

The clock is complete with the original weights and pendulum.

Joshua Harrocks was free in 1748 aged 21 and in 1759 made the Parish Clock in Lancaster.

The clock is similar to the sketch shown Ref. 'Gillows of Lancaster and London 1740-1840' page 391 by Susan E Stuart.
