A beautifully presented mid 19th century mahogany longcase clock with a vibrant painted dial, typical of Scottish clockmaking of the period.
The case has a bow-fronted trunk door, the hood with a tall door with a break-arch cross-banded border to the dial, wheat-ear shaped side sound frets , topped with a very well-carved pediment. The door and base are veneered in very lively flame mahogany.
The signed dial has vivid green painting, typical of Scottish dials. It depicts the four seasons to the corners, the arch with a scene titled Death of the Stag. There are subsidiary dials for seconds and date.
Four original matching thistle gilt brass hands.
Four pillar 8-day movement, with a rack mechanism striking the hours on a bell. The pendulum is black strip metal with a painted bob.
An almost identical clock by Muir is illustrated on page 220 of Clockmakers & Watchmakers of Scotland, by Donald Whyte, although that clock is missing its pediment.
Robert Muir was born in Dalry , Ayrshire in 1810.
