mylnelongweb-L

An excellent Scottish oak longcase clock with Strike/Silent feature to the arch.

The 8 day duration movement striking the hours on a bell and with a 12″ arched brass dial displaying a matted centre with sunken seconds featuring two sets of initials and a date of 1767, a date aperture and blued steel hands. The arch with a silvered brass roundel showing the makers name and also incorporating a Strike/Silent facility. The plain oak case of good colour with a long trunk door, brass escutcheon and a plain base with bracket feet. The hood with oak pillars topped with brass Doric capitals, inspection windows to both sides and a swan neck top inlaid with satinwood panels, roundels to the paterea and an oval inlay just below the brass eagle finial.

Note: James Mylne is listed as working in Montrose from 1740 onwards. This clock features the very rare feature of initials engraved to the centre of the seconds dial. There is also a date of 1767. This is almost certainly the date of a marriage and this clock was perhaps a wedding present.

New Arrivals – 2 Antique Moonphase Longcase Clocks

Two longcase clocks, both with moonphase features to the arch but with around 100 years between them in date and of course very different in design and stature.

The first is by Thomas Eastwick of London. Not a known maker as far as I can see so far but he obviously had access to the finest casemakers and from the quality of the movement he was also a very fine clockmaker. The use of a Moonphase in London is actually quite a rare feature indeed.

The cabinet work displays some very fine Chinoiserie work, including seven horses in various displays and guises. At 8’9″ the case is very impressive and is perfectly proportioned in every way. A very fine example of early 18th century Clockmaking.

The second clock is by Abraham of Frome. A smaller and plainer clock of course but with the added extra of a Moonphase again. Although the Moonphase feature was quite commonly used in the West Country its not usually found in an oak case. They are more often seen in mahogany cases from this area and period. Again, this longcase clock is very well proportioned and has a very good light coloured oak throughout. A very nice example.

Thomas Eastwick – London

An impressive 18th century Chinoiserie/Lacquered longcase clock with rare Moonphase feature to the arch.

The 8 day duration five pillar movement striking the hours on a bell and with the fifth pillar latched. The full brass dial with separate silvered brass chapter ring, engraved matted centre, blued steel hands, date aperture, the makers name engraved on an unusual basket shaped cartouche and enclosed by four brass spandrels. The arch featuring a rare early moonphase with further engraving including a finely engraved Phoenix to each Hemisphere. The actual disc with engraved silvered brass Moons and stars. The hugely impressive Chinoiserie decorated case with a green/brown ground and featuring a total of seven horses throughout the main trunk and base. Also featuring birds, lions, trees, buildings, flowers and a horse drawn carriage to the base and standing on a solid double plinth. The hood with separate brass capped pillars and quarter pillars to the rear with gilt capitals. The double domed pediment with a full caddy top with finely executed fretwork and three gilt wooden finials.

Note: Moonphase longcase clocks were not very commonly made in London. This is a particularly fine example with excellent lacquer work throughout the case and an exquisite dial to match.
