An excellent London longcase clock by Allam & Clements

NEW ARRIVAL - UNDER RESTORATION

A Classic London longcase clock by this well known and highly accomplished partnership.

The movement is of 8 day duration and features a strike/silent feature to the arch, a finely matted centre and double screwed spandrels (as used by Mudge & Dutton). 

The typical London case from this late 18th century period is veneered with the finest flame mahogany veneers and is adorned with a pagoda top and three brass spire finials. 

Note: William Allam appears to have had some influences from other notable makers during the 18th century such as Graham, Mudge, Dutton & Holmes. The hands and spandrels are typical of work by Mudge & Dutton with the double screwed feature being used originally by the famous Clockmaker Thomas Tompion. Although a prolific maker of bracket clocks and watches, very few Longcase clocks are recorded by William Allam. Many of his clocks and watches are on display in Museums around the world.

William Allam was Free of the Clockmakers Company in 1743 and worked in Fleet Street. Working alone at the beginning of his career he then joined in partnership with Clements in 1763 and worked until 1795.

Please Note: This clock has only just arrived and is currently in our workshops being prepared for restoration.
