GF074 - ASHTON, BRADBURY (STOCKPORT) JAMES OR SAMUEL C1800
Rare Centre Seconds Moonphase 8-day ornate oak clock.
This is a spectaular clock with all bells and whistles!
Housed in a tall oak and mahogany case, with break arch and fretwork surmounted by 3 original brass finials.
The movement is particularly rare, having centre seconds with a long steel hand, and a centre date with brass hand. It also features the moon phases in the arch with paintings of the moon, and also a wood cutter and horse riders in a rural setting slowly changing with the passing month.
The 8 day movement has its 2 weights, large brass pendulum with steel shaft, and its winding key.
The case has been professionally restored, and the movement serviced.
