A George III London longcase clock, with fine mahogany veneers and workmanship to both the case and the movement. The hood is flanked with fluted columns, half-filled with brass and with brass caps and base. The shaped figured trunk door has a reeded border on a moulded plinth base; a fine original clock of pleasing proportions.

The five pillar eight day movement is rack striking on a bell, with a strike / silent hand on the dial. All the wheels and pinions are very finely engineered, a top quality movement of its era. The two weights are bound in brass.

The 12 inch brass arched top dial has well-cast spandrels, a silvered chapter ring with matted centre, with an inset silvered subsidiary seconds dial, recessed calendar aperture and fan shaped maker's plate. To the arch is a silvered strike/silent dial.

Height (to the tip of the central spandrel) 7 feet 3½ inches, 222cm
According to the Apprentice Roll of the Clockmakers Company, on 26 March 1765, a HOWELLS JOHN, son of John of St. Catherine-by-the-Tower, was apprenticed as watchmaker to Thomas Sheafa for 7 years.
