This Longcase Mahogany's Maker - There is recorded just one John Robertson of Edinburgh ( at Netherbow ) 1783 - 1821 though not at Potterow Port. Dating by style this clock was made circa 1785 and I surmise, in the absence of any contrary information, that this was probably the same man.

This Longcase Mahogany's Movement - Well executed, 8 day, 4 pillar movement with hourly ( rack ) striking, pull hour repeat, gear and pin moonwork and strike/silent facility. - Price: £15,750
