An inlaid mahogany eight-day longcase clock, the dial signed for Webb and Son, Newbury, early 19th century, the four pillar rack and bell striking movement with 12 inch white Roman numeral break-arch dial with subsidiary seconds and calendar dials and inscribed Webb & Son , Newbury to centre, the angles with polychrome and gilt painted conch shell spandrels beneath arch decorated with Ho-Ho birds perched on a branch beneath scroll canopy, the break-arch case with with keystone centred moulded cornice and fluted columns to hood above ebony and box line bordered break-arch door above conforming short panel and flanked by inlaid canted angles to trunk, on plinth base with moulded skirt incorporating bracket feet with shaped apron between, 205cm (80.75ins) high.
Movement appears intact and in original condition however is very dirty (hence currently non-operational) and has had a repair to the pendulum suspension. The dial has been retouched. Movement and dial appear original to case. The case is generally intact but a little tired. The hood is lacking most of the brass base to the right hand pilaster and the joints to the base are becoming a little loose otherwise case has minor bumps, scuffs and other minor faults commenserate with age and use. Clock has weights and case key but no pendulum and winder.
