 186982305270243020 Fine Mahogany & Kingwood Brass Moon Dial Longcase clock

A beautiful Mahogany and Kingwood Moon Dial Longcase by W Lister of Halifax, dating to the early 1800's and in good working order. The lovely case is in Mahogany with Kingwood or Tulipwood crossbandings, and further inlaid bandings to the front. The long shaped case door with fine Figured Mahogany veneers to the centre, and with a moulded edge, original hinges, and the original lock behind the inlaid key escutcheon (the key is missing). The door is flanked by fine quality Quadrofoil pillars at each side, these are very unusual and a sure sign of crafstmanship, they are also repeated on the hood. The base section with inlaid inverted corners set inside the Kingwood crossbanding, with canted corners at each side, and the clock stands on its Ogee Bracket feet at a very impressive 96 inches in overall height. The hood is Swan Neck Pediment beneath a caddy top, the elegant horns rising up to the centre and finished with fabulous carved Rose paterae to the ends, and with recessed panels below and a moulded pediment to the centre. The hood door retains its original handle and is flanked by the quadrofoil pillars to match those on the lower case. The clock is in good condition, however there are a couple of minor age cracks, and the polish is a little tired in places, but overall this is a really beautiful case of fine quality. The brass and silvered Moon dial is in beautiful condition. The hours are represented by Roman Numerals inside an outer minute ring, the beautifully engraved centre with trailing foliage and the fully working seconds dial and non connected calendar dial which can be advanced manually each day. The top arch has the fully working revolving moon dial beneath the 29 1/2 day lunar calendar, the moon disc having two moons (it has some very minor paint chips), a landscape, and another unusual scene of a young lady. The moon sits above the detailed engraved hemispheres or "worlds" as they are also known, and the makers signature is engraved to the bottom of the chapter ring dial. The 8 day movement is in working order, chiming out the hours on a single bell. The movement is in original condition, it is running well and keeping excellent time. The clock is supplied with the old pendulum and pair of weights, and a replacement crank winding key. Due to the dial and movement having a falseplate I feel that they may be slightly later than the case, however it all fits well and looks superb. Overall a lovely Mahogany and Kingwood Moonroller longcase clock in good working order, ready to go straight into your home, definitely one not to be missed.
