Description
Clockwise is delighted to present to you this wonderfully Scottish mahogany eight day longcase clock signed 'Samuel Ritchie, Forfar' who was recorded as working in the High Street in Forfar in 1837. This lovely East coast piece has a wonderful case standing on bracket feet with boxwood inlay and bands of beech offsetting the sumptuous mahogany. The 7 feet tall case has quarter round reeded columns with matching reeded columns to the hood and brass capitals. The hood has a swan neck top, all original brassware and inlaid panels of satin birch with viewing windows to each side panel. The case is a gorgeous original colour and patination. The dial is delightful with each corner displaying a lady depicting one season and the top displaying a Scottish clan leader and horse-mounted soldiers with foot soldiers in the background. Signed by the maker and with a subsidiary seconds and working date dial this dial is a very impressive feature. The movement is of eight day duration with a rack strike and has just been refurbished fully with new lines fitted and comes with my standard three year guarantee. All my clocks have been personally chosen and restored by me and authenticated as genuine. I can happily offer nationwide delivery and any question you may have about your considered purchase I will be happy to answer. Clockwise is a third generation business of high repute and customer focus with clients from sport, film and the aristocracy so whatever you choose you can buy with confidence.

delivery

Rather than trusting a courier of any sort I recommend collection or I can deliver regionally/nationally. I do use Royal Mail as a courier and post nationally so this tracked and insured service is available, please enquire for a quote. 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 but this longcase clock would benefit from my expert delivery and setting up. I am always available for a video chat should there be any problems.
