A handsome George III period London mahogany longcase clock with 8-day hour striking
movement, Strike/Silent in the arch, subsidiary seconds, inset date work and maker’s
signature Tho Drew London within the matted brass centre.

The design and layout of the dial with its very narrow subsidiary rings, the fine matting and the inset maker’s signature along with the well-chased corner spandrels are of exceptional quality.

The beautifully proportioned flame mahogany case with its moulded break arch top has an
original wax finish and excellent patination. The moulded bridge top trunk door has reeded brass quarter columns in both the trunk and panelled base, a feature of only the best cases of the period.

Height: 98 in (248 cm)

* Thomas Drew is recorded on page 225 of Brian Loomes’ Clockmakers of the World: Complete 21st Century Edition as working in London circa 1754-1808. The exceptional quality of the dial, movement and case of this clock make it one of the finest London mahogany longcases that we have owned.
