A scarce 18th century oak cased striking 30 hour square brass dial longcase clock by Thos.Lister (Thomas Lister son of Thomas, Halifax Yorkshire, 1745-1814) a member of the prolific Lister family of clock makers.
This unusual 13" square brass dial has crown head spandrels around an engraved chapter ring enclosing and engraved dial centre bearing the makers details in script, under a half moon date aperture revealing a silvered working date wheel, below an inverted painted moon wheel dial showing through the moon aperture. These are unusual features for a 30 hour clock and synonymous with Lister clocks. The solid oak case has a flat hood with plain frieze over a pair of turned pillars with brass capitals and bases either side the opening hood door with brass knob. The quarter turned fluted side trunk encloses and arched mahogany cross-banded oak door with brass escutcheon and working lock and key over a square canted side mahogany cross-banded base on ogee shaped bracket feet.
