A highly collectable '8-day' flame mahogany veneered grandfather clock showing all the typical high quality London case features of the time. This clock has spent its entire life I believe in Portugal in Lisbon. It has also been exhibited in Lisbon to commorate a famous battle in portugese history where the English helped decide the outcome.The dial with two circular painted discs for the dial centre and the strike silent to the arch. Spandrels to the dial corners and to the arch as well, subsidiary seconds and calendar. The movement striking the hours on a single bell. What looks like the original transport piece of wood behind the movement when it was sent to Portugal. A very rare clock.
