GF073 - LONDON BURR WALNUT AUTOMATA - WILLM PICKARD 1730.
Superb Burr Walnut London 'SeeSaw' Automata, by William Pickard c1730.
This superb clock has all the features you would expect from a top quality London made piece.
Lovely polished and restored Burr-Walnut case with brass features, and arched door, 2 locks and keys. The base has been altered at some time.
The movement is a 5 pillar 8-day movement, with a 12" arched brass dial with signed cartouche, seconds hand, date feature, and a very rare painted arch with see-saw automata, which is in the process of being restored.
With original brass pendulum and brass cased weights.
This is a beautiful and very desirable clock.
