A lovely early 18th century 8 day oak grandfather clock. Together with a superb square brass dial signed Francis Robinson of Northampton. The dial with chapter ring and spandrels. Also with finely matted and engraved centre. Furthermore the lovely early feature of inside quarter divisions and ringed winding holes.
High quality movement striking the hours on a single bell.
The case of the finest colour and patination. With single plinth and shaped top to the trunk door. Rare mouldings adorned to the side of the case. Holes drilled to the hood to let the sound of the bell out. To sum up a very collectible early clock. The maker is probably related to Francis Robinson of London. He was a famous maker and Master of the Clockmaker’s Company.
