Description

A Superb Queen Anne Marquetry Longcase clock By Thomas Martin c1700
An exceptional quality marquetry longcase clock in a most wonderful original untouched condition, the fine arabesque marquetry is of the highest quality and features ho-ho birds, shells and floral swags. I have very carefully cleaned the case and applied a fine coat of the finest beeswax to ensure that the case does not dry out.
The fine five pillar movement with centre latched, inside countwheel and intricately made lever-work has not been overhauled yet so that you can specify the exact standard of finish of the movement parts. The quality of the movement clearly shows the influence of his highly trained father's pedigree.
Thomas Martin of London was apprenticed to Jeremiah Martin ( himself a famous Tompion apprentice ) in May 1692 then recorded as admitted to the Worshipful company of Clockmakers in 1699. he worked from the Royal Exchange (1714) then Fleet Street 1724.
With over twenty five years experience in restoring and conserving clocks and working on some of the finest and complicated clocks for a select group of the best antique clock dealers in the country.
As well as this, Overton Clocks has now decided to offer our customers the opportunity to purchase fine antique clocks that have been personally selected for their unique or special features. Each clock has been expertly restored to the highest of standards by myself. Overton clocks ensures peace of mind in your investment, by personally offering three years warranty on all of our timepieces.
I am a master clockmaker, a Freeman of the Worshipful Company of Clockmakers and a member of the British watch and clockmakers guild. Overton Clocks is a traditional clock shop based in the heart of Chesterfield on two floors hosting a showroom and in-house fully equipped workshop.
