A Georgian oak longcase clock. Below the hood with it’s moulded arched top is a brass and silvered clock dial which is signed by William Taylor of Dumfries. It has an 8 day movement which strikes the hours on a bell. The door is flanked by turned columns with gilded capitals. The case has an arched top to the door, fitted with a brass escutcheon and a working lock and key. The base is raised on a stepped plinth. The clock is a marriage of parts. The clock dial, movement and case didn’t start life together. The alteration was carried out a long time ago, but they work well together.
