A particularly fine George III period longcase clock in a classical architectural style. The refined and elegant case, which has achieved excellent patination, is veneered in well-figured mahogany and stands on a double plinth with moulded panel to the base and long moulded trunk door. The architectural hood with moulded door is flanked by canted corners with inset brass spines. The brass and silvered dial is engraved with Roman numerals, seconds rings and an aperture to view the day of the month. The dial is signed by the maker and above twelve o'clock is a lever for the strike/silent option. The exceptionally high quality five pillar movement includes a deadbeat escapement and maintaining power. The hours are sounded on a bell. The clock is complete with its original flat steel pendulum rod, massive brass bob pendulum with calibrated rating nut, weights and original winding key.
