Our Stock # LFA-1026
This is a handsome George III 30 hour longcase clock.
The engraved, thirteen inch, silvered dial is a real feature of this clock, the outer chapter ring with waxed black roman numerals supplemented by Arabic minute counters frames an inner dial decorated with swags and foliate and carrying the makers name 'Hampson Bury' and the motto:
'I serve thee here with all my might to tell the hours by day or night therefore example take by me and serve thy God as I serve thee'
(The inscription uses an ancient typeface where the 's' appears to be an 'f'' but is in fact an elongated 's' – a sign of it's age)
The oak case has glorious figuring. Rising from a plinth the trunk is flanked by quarter recessed columns and has a locking, scalloped arch top door. The hood continues with plain columns and scrolled pediments.
The chain driven thirty hour movement keeps good time and strikes on a bell.
Superb quality and a stunning piece presented in excellent antique condition. Solid and working. Delivered waxed, polished and oiled ready for use.
