Description

Exceptional Quality Arabesque Marquetry Longcase Clock by John Gammon c1690
The beautifully restored arabesque marquetry longcase clock with an almost three dimensional effect to the base. The photographs really do not do this clock justice and should be seen to be fully appreciated. Although not shown on the photograph the clock also has its original gesso with gilt covered finials that are currently being professionally stabilised. They will be re-instated when finished.
The fine, well made five knopped and ringed pillar moement with inside countwheel mechanism is currently not overhauled and will be cleaned and polished to your specific specification. When overhauled it will have a full three year guarantee for your peace of mind.
little is known of John Gammon of London except that a lantern clock inscribed "John Gammon Londini Fecit" is dated around 1670 and also a silver watch c1680.
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.
