An early 19th Century oak cased painted arched dial, 30 hour, striking longcase clock by W.Woolley Tong (William Woolley, Shropshire 1782-1856).
The 12" wide dial has florally painted spandrels, a quaint cottage structure to the arch, black Roman numerals, a date aperture revealing a painted working date wheel and a pair of pierced brass hands. The oak and mahogany case has a hood with swan neck pediment, brass roundels and spire, over a pair of turned pillars with brass capitals and bases, over a trunk with quarter turned and fluted pillasters, with brass capitals and bases either side the architectural top trunk door, cross-banded in mahogany with a central satinwood conch shell inlay over a square cross-banded base with canted corners, on a platform plinth.
