~ 8 Day Oak Cased Longcase Clock By Russell Marshall Circa 1830 ~
The clock has been professionally serviced and full restored, this included a full repaint of the dial which was in a neglected state to the original pattern. We would date this to the early nineteenth century.
The piece has a fine mid brown oak case.
The Roman numerals face is signed “R. Marshall, near Shotley Bridge” to the centre.
To the 12 o’clock position is a secondary face, which also uses Roman numerals, for the seconds hand.
The clock face is surrounded by depictions of flowers.
The arch top depicts a lake scene, with a small house, overlooking the lake with a church ruin to the other side.
It has a good proportioned long door with partial barley twist side column to either side. There are 3 turned finials atop.
The pendulum is decorated with a multicoloured floral pattern.
It strikes on the hour.
