A very good Queen Anne period walnut and floral marquetry longcase clock with 8-Day movement and outside countwheel strike on the hour. The brass dial has a raised silvered brass chapter ring, subsidiary seconds and inset datework. The beautifully wrought steel hands appear to be original and the matted brass dial centre has a centrally engraved Tudor Rose.

The elegant, well-proportioned case retains its original caddy top and very high quality flower and bird marquetry decoration offset by the dark ebony background. The main cross grain mouldings, original turned walnut hood pillars and the sides of the case are in richly patinated walnut.
Inside the trunk door there is a brief catalogue entry from the Christie Manson Woods Sale in 1897 where the clock was previously sold. The footnote states that the clock came from the collection of Lord Walter Scott at New Monckton Hall. It was placed in the room where Charles I had previously breakfasted before the battle of Marston Moor.
