The well proportioned and unusually small mahogany case with a long trunk door and a raised panelled base with double plinth. The hood with reeded angle pillars terminating with brass Doric capitals. The pagoda top with a blind sound fret and surmounted by three brass finials.
Note: There are several makers by this name listed as working in London during the 18th century. Alarm mechanisms on English longcase clocks are quite rare. Due to its small size we believe this may have been originally intended for use in a Bedroom.
