This Longcase Mahogany’s Movement – Finely executed 5 pillar movement with hourly ( rack ) striking and pull hour repeat.The centre sweep date work of superb quality. High quality steel strip pendulum with large diameter “double brass,” heavy pendulum bob with calibrated rating nut. Matched pair of brass bound weights. – Price: £19,850
Photographs of the month going “all over” bird and flower marquetry circa 1700 ( prior to restoration ) by John Culliford of Bristol now available. Prior to restoration pic’s taken for 2 reasons –
1. To illustrate the very fine and original condition.
2. The long restoration queue.Unlikely to be started for at least 10 weeks – unless there is serious interest before then.
