• By Thomas Wilmore who was possibly related to Chas Wilmore a London clock maker who became a prestigious Clock maker in Denmark in the first half of the 18th Century.
• The beautifully executed mahogany case has pineapple finials on an elegant bell top, brass trailing floral caryatides to the front angles, and glazed sides with brass handles. All the brass fittings are crisply executed and top quality. The dial is signed Thomas Willmore, London on a silvered sector within a matted ring. The narrow silver roman and Arabic chapter ring with a relatively rare calendar ring. There is a strike/silent ring between foliate spandrels and elaborately blued steel hands with an arrow head calendar hand.
• It has a lovely original movement with no historic modifications / improvements. The five-pillar twin fusee movement has its original verge escapement, strikes the hours on a bell, with a pull repeat and strike/silent function.
• The backplate, pendulum and securing brackets are crisply engraved with fruit and vine decoration.
• The fine clock case and serviced movement come in superlative condition with a 12 month warranty (uk only).

Restoration and Presented Condition
I do not subscribe to the shabby chic or make it like new approach using modern materials which can make future restoration extremely difficult and impede long-term investment value.
Any restoration work is done to the highest (museum) standards using traditional materials so as to not compromise the patina of age.
Accordingly, please note some antique items for sale will have wear and marks associated with use over many generations that adds to the aesthetic beauty of the piece from the collector’s perspective.
Fine Art - Condition
All Paintings offered have been chosen for their excellent original condition, with where necessary museum standard cleaning, restoration and revarnishing. Presented in Gallery condition they are ready to hang for many generations, before cleaning / revarnishing may be necessary.
