Description
A 19th century Scottish George IV period mahogany cased Grandfather clock. The clock has decorative painted dial with a scene at the top of "Robert Burns at the Plough". By repute Burns was ploughing a field and turned up a mouse's winter nest destroying it, then wrote a poem about the incident. The corners of the dial have painted scenes of the four seasons and the clock has an eight day movement that strikes the hour on a bell. The case is made from figured mahogany with recessed panels and quarter columns either side of the door. The hood has a carved and shaped swan neck pediment with a turned finial to the centre and the dial has 'Calvert Dundee' painted on. Arthur Calvert was a watchmaker and jeweller situated at 44 Wellgate, Dundee in the 19th century. Height 216cm (85 inches) Width 53cm (20.9 inches) Depth 24.5cm (9.6 inches)
