Description / Expertise

An attractive and rare mid 18th century hooded wall clock with a penny moon dial. The case, with a glazed opening door, has cross grained walnut veneers to the front. Plain classical columns and a moulded stepped cornice are typical of the period and are enhanced by a rich patination. It sits on a later shaped bracket.
The 30 hour movement by Lough of Penrith has been cleaned and checked to insure that it is in fine working order.
The 12inch brass dial has the sought after feature of the penny moon to the centre of the dial, a moving disc with an engraved moon face and painted stars that show the moon phases.
