Superb Mahogany Longcase Clock

Thomas Lees, Bury, Lancashire.

Circa 1830

~~ Excellent Original Condition ~~

Stunning mahogany and flame mahogany veneered, late Georgian / early Victorian 8-Day Tallcase in excellent condition and of impressive proportions. The arched dial is complete with rolling moon (showing the phase of the moon) alternating with ship in full sail and gothic ruin, and the spandrels depict girls as the four seasons.  Winter is warm and cosy, seated in a drawing room with a roaring fire, her little King Charles Spaniel sits at her feet.  Spring holds a basket of flowers and has a spring lamb.  Summer has a hay rake and the little dog sleeps in the sun and Autumn a great bunch of grapes.  The dial is most beautifully painted with great detail and colour.

The case is very elegant, of commanding proportions, and a rich flame figured mahogany is used for the case which is elegantly proportioned and looks great!  The quality is super and the case of heavy construction.

Thomas Lees is listed as working in Bury, Lancashire from 1790 to 1848. Ref: Watchmakers and Clockmakers of the World Volume 2 by Brian Loomes.

Dial is original and has been carefully cleaned by our professional dial restorer.  

Movement is excellent quality - Eight day movement, strikes the hours on a bell and is in excellent, clean and fully working order including the date and moon phase dials.

The case is in lovely and very original condition. We have replaced the cabriole feet in mahogany. As usual with veneered cases, the carcass has moved slightly causing some cracking of the mahogany veneer - there is some minor shrinkage of the veneers on the front of the clock. The hood door veneer has a couple of cracks - these only add character to the clock.  Many pictures detail condition.

A wonderful, decorative Tallcase for any gracious interior.

Dimensions: Height 98 1/2", Width 24", Depth 10 1/2"
