Description

A lovely restored George 11 mahogany and inlay Longcase clock with Moonphase dial, date and second subsidiary dials by Samuel Wright of Northwich c1750
The lovely mahogany case with satinwood stringing, brass reeded columns to the hood and trunk, and Inlayed star to the door is finished with an arched top hood with fretwork panel above the arch.
The knopped pillar movement has been fully overhauled by our Jessica Elliott who has now finished her full clockmaking apprenticeship with us. Jess is now a full member of the watch and clockmakers guild and will in due course apply to become a Freeman of the Worshipful Company of Clockmakers. The clock has been restored to the highest of standards and comes with a full three years guarantee for your peace of mind. Unusually, this clock features the moonphase actuating wheel being fixed to a hollow tubed bracket (cock) that fits over the escapewheel ( second hand) pivot, the second hand having a very long shaft so this it can fit down the tube onto the escapewheel arbor. This differing from the usual method of placing the wheel to one side on a steel stud. I am guessing that because of the very narrow clock plates there was not enough room to accommodate this method.
The carefully restored brass dial with silvered chapter rings and ringed winding holes is finished with a painted moonphase dial to the arch. I Have purposely tried to restore the dial sympathetically by retaining as much of the original finish as possible without making the dial look “brand new”.
