Georgian Walnut Hooded Wall Clock. U160

DescriptionAn attractive and rare mid 18th century hooded wall clock with a penny moon dial. The case, with a glazed opening door, has cross grained walnut veneers to the front.

The 30 hour movement by Lough of Penrith has been cleaned and checked to insure that it is in fine working order.
The 12inch brass dial has the sought after feature of the penny moon to the centre of the dial, a moving disc with an engraved moon face and painted stars that show the moon phases. Circa 1740
