Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
The pretty quarter sawn oak case is shorter than usual and has some nice features such as the fluted quadrants on the trunk with cast brass capitals and bases. The fluting then continues through to the columns of the hood and finally to the three pedestals which frame the piecrust fret. The pie-crust fret is a typically feature of East Anglia and the South East, with the pedestals sometimes drilled to take three matching finials; though these have never previously had any fitted.
The back of a longcase clock is often quite rough looking and often just held in place by a series of triangular glue blocks, however the crack in the centre of this pine back board must have been deemed too unsightly or unsound and has had a patch fitted courtesy of an Irish newspaper. The date of the paper is pleasing and shows how the pendulum has rubbed for the one hundred and twenty-five odd years.
