An extremely rare and exceptional quality early 18th century Georgian oak brass faced musical 8 day grandmother clock by Tho (Thomas) Vernon, Ludlow (circa 1740).
This most desirable clock has a quarter chiming 8 bells movement with hourly strike on a coiled gong, a chime/silent lever to the top of the 10"square dial with its silver chapter ring and cast brass corner spandrels. The mahogany cross-banded hood has a pair of turned and fluted pillars with oak capitals and bases over a concave throat atop a slim trunk with quarter turned pilasters either side the short mahogany cross-banded door. The square raised panel base stands on small Georgian bracket feet.
This elegant small scale longcase clock would grace any setting and give years of musical pleasure.
