Footnotes

  • This clock has undergone some alterations in its 250 year history - the enamel dial is a late 18th century improvement - underneath it, the original dial centre can be seen with remnants of its painted foliage intact. There is also evidence of an applied nameplate. The movement too, shows numerous filled and unfilled holes; as such it represents an excellent restoration project.

Saleroom notices
