Detailed Information
Extra Detail
Title LCMAH 316
Case Typical late 18C 'Northwest' solid Cuban figured mahogany, long door case of excellent quality, colour, proportion and fine 'extra' detail i.e. hand carved 'flower head' paterae on the eagle/ball centred swan neck terminations, the carved detail to the arch above the dial, the stopped, fluted hood columns with matching hood backsplats and matching trunk quarter columns, the latter having pierced 'diamond' frets below, the Greek key pattern detail under the throat moulding, shaped top to the long trunk door, to the carved detail in the verticals of the canted corners of the base.All set on shallow bracket feet. N.B. This case would almost certainly have been made by Christopher Newby, a cousin of William and former Gillows apprentice, taken on in 1774, who, it is known, produced clock cases for the Newby clockmakers from the Kendall ( now spelt Kendal ) area, being listed in the Universal British Directory for 1790.( This, by style, being circa 1780 and earlier than the painted dial examples illustrated in the two volume Gillows study by Susan E. Stuart ).
Dial 13" breakarch brass dial with large, colourful, rocking ship automaton to arch and William Newby Kendall engraved to a 'rainbow' above. Matted and engraved dial centre with typical subsidiary seconds dial and square date box. Typical 'Northern' large cherubs head cast brass spandrels - but of an unusual pattern.Blued cut steel hands.Similar rocking ship dials noted on his 30 hour clocks though this is the only one ( so far ) seen on one of his 8 day examples.
Movement Good quality 8 day movement with 4 knopped pillars and hourly ( rack ) striking.
