John Harvey of Weymouth Longcase Clock

A fine 8 day longcase clock striking the hours on a bell. The early 12” painted dial features strawberries and raised gilt gesso corners and a portrait of a lady to the arch. Original blued steel hands and ‘mouth’ calendar.

The superb case (whilst original to the clock) is almost certainly London made and features choice veneers, a long break-arched trunk door, false panel to the base and fluted hood pillars with brass reeding, all typical London.

Dated: C.1785
Height: 85” / 216cm
