A good quality oak 8 day longcase clock by Samuel Whalley of Manchester. Dial features date this clock to c.1735 (eagle/urn spandrels, fleur-de-lys hour spacers, quarter-hour chapter).
The case is of the best oak, banded with mahogany, and the hood has a fashionable 'caddy top' with blind fretting (slight damage). Tall and elegant, the clock is of exceptional colour & patina with an attractive ogee arched door. 8-day movement with brass dial with engraved and silvered chapter ring, signed ‘S. Whalley. Manchester’
£750 spent in August 2021 restoring the movement which is now in excellent order throughout, with the exception of the date ring, which no longer functions.
