A superb little, striking 18th century cottage longcase clock, with painted dial and 30 hour duration movement by Basford of Wem (Daniel Basford 1795-1835).
The pretty square dial has colourful flowers for the corner spandrels and there is a central painted urn and swag design, with both Roman and Arabic numbers in black. In the dial centre is a date aperture revealing a black painted date wheel. The flat top oak case has a hood with mahogany cross-banding to the door and either side of this are a pair of turned oak smooth pillars. The trunk has a long mahogany cross-banded door with a brass shield shape escutcheon and working lock and key. The base stands on a platform plinth. The clock is particularly pleasing because of its small size; it is a super clock ready to grace any setting.
