Footnotes

  • Provenance: This clock has passed by descent from the vendor's great grandfather.

    A similar example is illustrated in Cescinsky and Webster's 'English Domestic Clocks' Antique Collectors' Club, 1976 edition, fig 243, page 224. Of particular interest is the socle below the ball finial which is identical to that of this lot, as in other examples the finial sits on a moulded section that runs the length of the hood.
