Made circa 1715
Height 91 inches (232 cm )
An 18th century Mahogany Longcase clock of good colour and proportions.
The trunk with quarter columns, the base with canted angles and a raised panel.
The excellent quality 8-day movement has a brass dial with the makers name signed on a shaped cartouche.
Made circa 1770
Height 88 inches(223.5cm)to the top of the centre finial.
An early 20th century Tubular chime Long case clock.
The good quality weight driven German made movement has a Dead-beat escapement, maintaining power and beat adjustment.
The quarter chiming mechanism has a tune selector to the arch of the dial and can be set to play Westminster, St. Michael or Whittington chimes on Tubular bells.
There are also chime and strike silent levers to the nine & three O`clock positions.
These levers allow the mechanism to quarter chime only with no hour strike, or Hour strike only with no quarter chime.
But of course full quarter and hour strike can be played together if the lever are set to the appropriate positions, or no chime or strike at all.
The movement has been fully serviced and is in fine working order.
The dial is in good condition with the original gilding & silvering, and is signed with the retailers name J. W .Benson London.
The dial plate measures 26.5 cm x 37 cm so much smaller than other clocks of a similar design making this example much rarer.
Additionally the total height of the case is only 211cm
The Mahogany case has detailed panels to the front, and also the sides of the base.
The sides of the trunk also have bevelled edge glasses which allow more light in to the case so you can see the polished tubular bells, weights and pendulum more easily, making this a visually more attractive clock.
There are also chamfered angles to the trunk and base with blind fretwork, frets to the sides of the hood, and blind fretwork to the arch of the hood.
It should be noted that Tubular chiming long case clocks are usually much larger than this example.
This has a smaller dial, and therefore the case has corresponding smaller proportions.
Made circa 1920.

The mahogany case of unusual style,is very elegant.
Not only is the complex construction of the case unusual, but the movement is also long duration running for approximately 3-months.
The 12 inch re-painted dial is signed H.Alpen South Street.
No record of the maker can be found in any of the usual reference books,so the name on the dial could be a later user as is quite often the case on clocks used as shop / workshop regulators.
What is very clear is that this is a very "Rare" clock, of unusual design and Duration.
