CFA 6275 - 8 Day Longcase Bowen (Swansea)

In stock

£5,795.00

A striking early 19th century mahogany 8 day brass dial longcase clock by David Bowen, Swansea.

The superbly engraved square dial has a chapter ring with both Roman and Arabic numbers with the maker's details in script. There are the 2 obligatory winding holes inside a dial centre which is a joy to behold, an arched date aperture with a working date wheel, a seconds hand and hour and minute hand all in blued steel. Attractive cast spandrels hold the whole scene together. The shiny mahogany case has a swan neck hood pediment with brass roundels and brass central orb. There are a pair of turned and fluted pillars with brass capitals and bases aside a wavy edge hood door, which was popular in that part of the country, and a brass knob for opening. The canted sided trunk has a small boxwood/ebony inlaid flame mahogany door with working lock and key. The square base is similarly inlaid and stands on a short platform plinth.
