Long Case Eight Days Movement Clock Mahogany Grandfather Clock
This well-proportioned eight days movement mahogany long case clock was made by Abel Holby, recorded as a clockmaker in Driffield, East Yorkshire, between 1840 and 1858. The clock has been carefully restored and is in working order with a comforting tick-tock and a pleasing ring on the hour. The clock stands on a plinth and features a gothic-style door and a swan neck pediment. The arched enamelled dial is painted with an evocative pastoral scene, roman numerals and gold floral motives at the corners. The brass hands are finely wrought. The key is present and working smoothly to wind the clock from two keyholes on either side of the dial.
