An outstanding ‘8-day’ walnut veneered Longcase clock. Rare clock by this eminent clockmaker Thomas Ogden of Halifax. The cabinet of the finest choice walnut veneers. Including dome top to the hood with fretwork beneath. Long trunk door and standing on two plinths.
The dial with polished corners, chapter ring and spandrels. Also with spherical moon to arch, seconds and calendar and finely matted centre. Featuring typical high quality brass beading to the edge of dial. Outstanding decoration to winding and calendar apertures. The movement of the finest quality. Three bells for quarter repeat and single bell for hour strike.
This maker is in my opinion, the finest of all northern clockmakers. Many people think on a par with the finest of all clockmakers.
