Longcase Clock by William Lawrance

THAME, OXFORDSHIRE

c. 1745
William Lawrance longcase clock

An extremely rare George II miniature oak longcase with 8" square brass dial and 30-hour birdcage movement. Fine matting to dial centre, silvered chapter ring and fine steel replacement hand. The oak case stands 66" high with opening front door with fixed decorative pillars and with quarter pillars to the rear of the hood. The case is solid and has been sympathetically restored.

Several details of the movement resemble the details and features found on clocks from the Knibb workshops.

This clock would be well-suited to a low-ceilinged cottage.

William Lawrance of Thame, Oxfordshire, is a recorded clockmaker of 1744 to 1764.
