Case Typical "Edinburgh" area slender, well proportioned, long door mahogany case with spire/ball centred swan neck pediment having satinwood panels under, fluted hood columns with matching trunk quarter columns and simple strip plinth to base. Very delicate, very pretty.
Dial 12" breakarch early, delicately painted, "Osborne" dial, signed Robt. Welsh Dalkeith to flower sprig flanked circular reserve in arch.Strawberry and flower painted corner spandrels, subsidiary seconds dial, small square datebox with silvered date ring similar to and developed from the earlier brass dial format ( see LCMAH 311 by the same maker, though that example somewhat earlier ). Large Roman chapters with smaller ( 5 minutes numbered ) Arabic outers. Blued, cut steel, hands. N.B. Thomas Hadley Osborne, the dialmaker, is recorded "born 1753, Sutton Coldfield worked at 20, Cherry Orchard, Birmingham, died 1779 aged 26" so we may confidently date this clock to circa 1778. In his earlier career he was in partnership with James Wilson1772 - 1777 in Colmore Row, Birmingham.
Movement Good quality, 8 day, movement with hourly ( rack ) striking.
