This Longcase Mahogany's Maker - Tanner of London is ( as yet ) an unrecorded maker at this date although there are other Tanners before and after.

This Longcase Mahogany's Movement - Nicely executed 4 pillar, 8 day movement with hourly ( rack ) striking and tee shaped front plate to take the geared ( constantly engaged ) moondrive work. It is interesting to note an original error when the movement was laid out - both top dial feet being drilled without allowance for their shoulders( which would have fouled the moon disc ) necessitating two extra holes slightly further out along the tee. The bottom dial feet holes being correctly drilled ( and obviously well away from the moon disc ). The extra holes could have easily been filled during restoration but it was felt best to leave them as an individual quirk of manufacture. Brass strip pendulum with "double brass" pendulum bob and brass bound weights. - Price: £15,750
