George III Period 'Lancashire Chippendale' longcase clock by Thomas Worswick, Lancaster
Slim and elegant, this northern English clock has distinctive design features favored by the Gillows cabinetmakers: an architectural pediment with panels of Chippendale-inspired geometric fretwork, and shaped and dentil mouldings around the hood door. The long shaped door is veneered with sabicu, an exotic hardwood. The eight-day movement strikes hourly, features strike repeating and a lunar mechanism.
8'1" High Circa 1760-1765
