Featuring its original clockworks crafted in England in the late 17th century by John Wise Junior. John Wise Junior was the son of John Wise senior to whom he was apprenticed from 1675 until 1682. From the date of this clock, it is most probable it was made by the son. They were both prominent early London makers whose work is highly regarded. The superb 18th century case boasts hand sculpted details from dense, old-growth French white oak with classic architecture enhanced by rococo motifs rendered in fine relief. The arched crown topped with a crest motif leads the eye to the intricately embossed brass and tin dial, framed by mitered and carved cornerposts. Fine molded detail and carved accents lead the eye down to the pendulum window, and to the tailored & footed base.
Circa 1690s - 1710.
