A fine William & Mary late 17th century marquetry longcase clock. It has decorative laburnum veneers on oak, with fine line inlays and ebonised trim. Oyster veneers on the door form a background to panels of exquisite flower and bird marquetry, featuring a pair of loving birds. The 11 inch brass dial, with silvered chapter ring, has a seconds dial, date aperture, and 4 winged cherub spandrels.The 8 day London 5 pillar movement, original and in perfect working order, has been cleaned and overhauled.
