This is a fine, heavy-cased, early Georgian oak longcase clock, the trunk with moulded outline and reeded column supports, the square hood enclosing an 11.5-inch square brass dial, with cast spandrels, silvered chapter ring subsidiary calendar window and seconds dial, and eight-day striking movement striking the full hour on a beautiful bell. The dial and hands are in excellent condition as is the recently overhauled movement which has an inside countwheel strike and is of a five-pillar design, the fifth pillar being latched. The movement posts are 'four finned' and with the matted center of the dial (signed 'Paul Beaudair, London to the chapter ring), decorative rings around the winding holes and the style of spandrels used all the signs point to a lovely original clock from the early 1700's. All my clocks come with a two year guarantee as standard.
Clockwise has clarified that the Eight Day Early George II London Longcase Clock (LA354317) is genuinely of the period declared with the date/period of manufacture being 1720
Rather than trusting a courier of any sort I unreservedly recommend collection or I can deliver regionally/nationally. All antique clocks require delicate handling and specific setting up so it is far better for a dealer to meet a client and talk them through the process, or set the clock up for them, rather than leave the client struggling at the other end on their own.
