Small 18th Century 8 Day Longcase Clock (England, c. 1760)


A small, very original solid oak longcase clock from Kent having great colour and proportions. This clock is unusual as it is of small proportions, yet the clock is of 8 day duration (most clocks this size are 30 hour). It has a flat top, a square dial, turned hood columns and capitals and a long door. The 12 inch brass dial has an engraved and silvered chapter ring, a subsidiary seconds dial and an engraved name plate signed, William Flint, Charing. It has an 8 day movement that sounds the hours on a bell. William Flint was born in 1733 and died in 1795.
