A highly desirable antique oak longcase clock of very small proportions.

The 8 day duration movement striking the hours on a bell with a 12" square white painted dial with Roman Numerals and Arabic minutes. Also with seconds and date to the centre and blued steel hands. The corners painted with the early feature of raised gold gesso scrolls.

The small oak case of a very light colour with a long trunk door inlaid with a large ebony and boxwood starburst to the centre and further inlay to the edge. The plain base with small bracket feet. The hood with a flat top, plain angle pillars terminating with unusual ebonised capitals and inspection windows to each side.

The movement has been serviced in recent years but as part of our 3 year guarantee it will be given a further inspection upon purchase and serviced as necessary.

Note: The dial is made by James Wilson of Birmingham. One of the most well known and earliest Dial Makers. William Pratten is listed as working in Bath during the late 18th century.
