A fine and rare Queen Anne 8 Day walnut Longcase clock by this excellent clockmaker.
The oak case is veneered with the finest quality burr walnut veneers and there is a brass lenticle to the trunk door. The sides of the trunk are panelled with book matched veneers and fully crossbanded. The walnut veneered hood is flanked by boldly turned walnut columns with brass capitals and bases and there is a delicate sound fret below the crossgrain walnut cornice moulding which returns to each side.
The 12 inch brass dial is mounted with cherub and crown spandrels, silvered chapter ring and subsidiary seconds ring. The centre is finely matted and has ringed winding holes and punch decoration. There is an aperture to view the date and the maker’s signature is engraved between VII and V on the chapter ring. The well pierced and blued steel hands may well be original.
The top quality 8 Day duration movement is numbered 255 at the bottom of the dial and has five pillars. The hours are sounded on a bell via a inside counterwheel strike.
Joshua Wilson was active in the later part of the 17th century and the early years of the 18th Century and a similar clock of his is featured on page 171 of “ The Wetherfield Collection of Clocks”. A similar clock is featured on page 171 of “ English Domestic Clocks “.
