CFA 6327 - 30 Hour Longcase Speight (Tong)

In stock


A very rare and highly desirable 18th century oak brass dial chain wind striking 30 hour longcase clock with rolling moon by J.Speight, Tong (James Speight, Tong-Shropshire, 1750-1785).

The 13" arched brass dial has a 29 day moon wheel in the arch which advances slightly every 12 hours; this is a rare feature in 30 hour clocks. There are fine cast scroll spandrels around a raised brass chapter ring enclosing a floral engraved centre with the maker's details in capitals above an engraved date chapter ring and date pointer. The mainly oak case has a mahogany enhanced swan neck pediment with mahogany roundels over a pair of turned and fluted hood pillars with brass capitals and bases either side a mahogany glazed door with central oak leaf cartouche above a plain frieze. The walnut cross-banded wavy top trunk door is set in a plain trunk with quarter turned and fluted pilasters with brass capitals and bases over a square based with raised moulded panel on a shaped bracket plinth.
