Title  Late Georgian drumhead long case clock by Francis Byrne grandfather clock hand painted dial Glasgow


Description

Antique late Georgian mahogany long Case clock with hand painted dial gilt edge and original glass front. The mahogany drumhead or round top of the clock with carved acanthus and scrollwork. The fron face with original glass and gold leaf bezel. An original hand painted clock case with retailers marked Reid and Todd Glasgow.

A tapering body with convex shaped door to pendulum and weights. All original finish and patina in superb condition.

The original two train movement with top mounted bell strikes the hour and is signed to the falseplate, a cast iron panel behind the front face plate by the noted clock maker Francis Byrne  Birmingham  and dates this mechanism to 1791-1810. 

The seconds dial above the main dial and with a date dial below makes this a very rare and desirable clock.  The overall design of the drumtop case may have been influenced by earlier Gustavian Mora clocks cases from 18th century Sweden.  This case is late Regency and probably dates to around 1825. It was common for the clock mechanism to be sold in a plain case and when fortunes favoured the new owner a more up to date clock case in luxurious and expensive mahogany could be afforded.

 

In good working order .

The Waterbury Clock Company, one of many 19th century Connecticut-based clock firms, began as a subsidiary of Benedict & Burnham, a brass manufacturing company, in 1857. Benedict & Burnham had no background in clock making, but it saw clocks as a means to use its brass. Over the years, Waterbury would become a leading manufacturer of clocks—by the time it closed its doors in 1944, it had made some of the most memorable American antique wall clocks and mantel clocks, as well as highly regarded clock movements and watches.

This unusual clock cabinet is veneered in rare Brazillian rosewood, also known as Jacaranda.

Title  Blonde Swedish Provincial Mora long case grandfather clock original hand painted dial with twin bells


Description

Antique Swedish Empire MORA grandfather clock with carved hand shaped pine long case with origninal working 8 day movement. 

The tall case in typical provincial blonde wood waxed finish and with elegant cold climate spruce grain.

Of typical form  with drumhead top but more elegant Empire tapering body.

The Swedish Mora clock first appeared in Stockholm during the Gustavian Period in the mid-eighteenth century. Farmers in the Mora area wanted to look for ways to supplement their income. The villagers of Östnor, outside Mora, turned to traditional home crafts such as the making of clocks. This was essential work as the long frozen winter months restricted work to indoor activities. Each farming family specialized in a specific part: some made the brass clockworks, some painted the dials while others built or painted the cases. At the height of production more than 90 families were engaged in the trade, and Mora functioned as one large clock factory. This traditional hand made craft eventually ceased when cheaper mass production clocks from America became available from the 1840's onwards.

 

The steel and brass clock mechanism with  top mounted twin bells and two cast iron weights. The bell strikes the hour count. A recently replaced long brass pendulum is housed within the case. The clock face with hand painted enamel face with Roman numerals in black on white with the superb cut steel hands .

Two train movement with winding key. The door to the pendulum case with original steel lock and steel key.

The drum head shaped top with opening front door retains it original hand brlown convex glass front.

The main body with a unusual neoclassical tapering pyramidic shape  and hinged panel door with round window front opens with with traditional steel key on spring lock.

The shaped pine mouldings to the case in the provincial manner complete with pegged joints in 18th century tradition. .
