ANTIQUE Longcase Miscellaneous CLOCKS

Miscellaneous woods were used for longcase cases most common "other" being softwood i.e. pine family, usually "scumbled" ( surface decorated to imitate say, mahogany ), plain black ebonised, or simply painted. Softwood carcasses were often used for lacquer clocks. Elm or oak/elm is often encountered in provincial cases, sometimes burr elm in the more "upmarket" examples ( and not just provincial ). Ebony veneer rather than ebonised is often encountered on the rarer early clocks. Yew wood is rarely encountered ( my first example being recently acquired after 23 years in the business ). Other "exotics" such as mulberry etc. are encountered but rarely.
