A fine example of a late 18th century tall clock in ribboned mahogany, its bonnet with swan neck pediments with inlaid rosettes flanking a brass sphere finial, Corinthian capitals over reeded full columns, small side bonnet arched windows, tombstone dial with hand painted seashells in spandrels and a foliate painted arch, inscribed “W. Johnson, Evesham,” small seconds hand, calendar aperture (some paint losses), over a waist door bordered with thin checkered inlay and a central inlaid seashell, flanked by reeded quarter columns, and a base with line inlaid front panel, all supported by bracket feet. The clock has a weight driven eight day brass movement with two iron weights and pendulum. The clock appears to be in good working condition, with minor imperfections, shrinkage cracks in bonnet and on each side of base, surface inlay losses, light craquelure on dial, and expected wear from age and use. Dimensions: 90” h x 20” w x 10” d.
