Early Longcase Brass Dial Oak Case By Kirkham In Holywell

Early Longcase Brass Dial Oak Case By Kirkham In Holywell

SKU: 3718

This is a fine example of a Georgian oak longcase clock made in the late 1700's. The case is very unusual due to its shorter height, being almost the size of a grandmother clock. The cabinet's maker carefully selected a fine grained oak which is French polished in a Venetian red finish.
The full opening door is beautifully decorated with a light wood veneer.
The dial is made out of brass with silvered chapter ring surrounded by cast bronze spandrels. The bottom of the dial is signed by Kirkham in Holywell.
The traditional English movement is a fine quality, striking the hour on a bell.
PLEASE NOTE, DUE TO THE SHORTER HEIGHT OF THIS CLOCK THE MOVEMENT NEEDS TO BE WOUND EVERY 6 DAYS.
THE MOVEMENT AND THE CASE ARE ORIGINAL AND BELONG TO EACH OTHER. THERE IS NO INDICATION THAT THIS MOVEMENT HAS EVER BEEN MOUNTED IN A TALLER CASE.
