Elegant Regency mahogany Longcase Clock
A fine quality and particularly elegant late 18th/early 19th century mahogany Longcase Clock of pretty and compact proportions. The case, of “London” design (see note below) is typical of the period with its convex glass to the hood front door, flanked by brass-inlaid canted corners and unusual convex glass panels to the sides through which the movement may be observed. The long trunk door is veneered in finest “flame” mahogany, and is also flanked by brass-inlaid reeded canted corners, leading to the double-plinth base applied with an ogee moulded panel and small bracket feet.
The eight-day movement is of fine quality, striking hours on a bell, with a good painted convex dial and original elegant ‘spade’ hands. Complete with original pendulum and pair of brass-case weights. Perfect working order and guaranteed for two years. 7ft 6ins (228cms) high. circa 1795-1810
** James Ferris started work in London, being apprenticed in 1783. He later moved to Poole (Dorset) where he is recorded working there circa 1810. His move from London to Poole would explain the use of such a high quality “London” mahogany case.
