Another very good 18th century oak and mahogany, striking square brass dial, 8 day longcase clock by William Parkes, Wolverhampton (West Midlands, 1766-1775).
The 13" square brass dial has cast corner spandrels around a raised silvered chapter ring with engraved makers details and internal date markings for the centre handed date pointer. The finely matted and scroll engraved centre has a pair of blued steel hands together with a sweep centre seconds hand which is a rare feature in longcases. The oak hood has a flat top over a plain frieze over a pair of turned and fluted brass capped pillars either side the mahogany cross-banded door, over a trunk with quarter turned fluted pilasters either side a wavy top mahogany cross-banded door with brass escutcheon and working lock and key above a square cross-banded base on a shaped bracket plinth.
