A Regency Oak Longcase Clock

This item has been sold.

An unusual provincial Regency longcase clock in an oak case, the hood with swan neck pediment with brass terminals and with turned columns to the sides, over a square glazed door to the 12” cream painted dial with Roman numerals in black with an outer minute track and inner track, and with pink and blue flowers to the spandrels, and with a single pierced hour hand, signed W. STANTON. Buckingham to the centre, with a 30-hour birdcage type movement striking the hours on a bell and operated by a later chain, in an oak case with a locked door crossbanded in mahogany on a deep plinth base. England, Southeast Midlands, circa 1815.

Condition: Overall very good, the clock is in very good condition, with no paint loss to the dial, which has light crazing and slight discolouration commensurate with its age; the case is in good condition and the plinth appears to be the original.
Movement: In our opinion, this clock has always had this movement, and it is not a marriage. The movement sits well in the case and the hand is also, in our opinion, the original. The movement has been fully serviced and overhauled and is in full working condition and the clock comes with a door key, weight and pendulum.
