CFA 6272 - 30 Hour Longcase Humphrey-Jones (Oswestry)
A typical early 1800's Shropshire 30 hour, striking, cottage longcase clock with square painted dial in an oak and mahogany case bearing the name Humphrey-Jones, Oswestry (1801-1848).
The 12" square dial has conch shell and flower spandrels, black Arabic numbers around a central image of a bird, over a date aperture which reveals a working date wheel and a pair of blue steeled hands. The oak and mahogany cross-banded hood has a swan neck with turned mahogany roundels, over turned and fluted pillars with brass capitals and bases, over a wavy top trunk door with original brass decorative escutcheon, working lock and key. The trunk has turned and fluted quarter round pillasters over an oak base with mahogany cross-banding on shaped bracket feet.
