Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
A middle of the 19th century Scottish Victorian Grandfather clock.
The clock has a hand painted dial and has an eight day hour striking movement.
The case is made from mahogany with rosewood columns either side of the rosewood cross banded door.
The hood has a swan neck pediment with panels of rosewood veneer and a brass ball and eagle finial in the centre.
The dial has ladies depicting the four seasons hand painted in the corners and a courting Scottish couple painted in the domed top.
The dial is signed 'WM Conllie Marykirk' and has Roman numerals. The two secondary dials, one for the date and the other for seconds, both have engraved brass hands that terminate in a Scottish Thistle
The case is in very good condition, the figured mahogany and quarter veneers along with the use of rosewood make it different from the norm.
The works have been fully overhauled and come with a one year guarantee.
The brass ball and eagle are a replacement and the lock and key works. (Circa 1850)
Height 215cm (84.6 inches)
Width 51cm (20 inches)
Depth 25cm (9.8 inches)
