George III Period mahogany longcase clock with lunar and tidal dials, by Thomas Wiggan, Bristol, circa 1770-1780
Beautifully crafted and very distinctive in style, this Bristol clock is of solid and veneered mahogany with flame veneer on the trunk door. Hood columns are fluted and capped with brass Corinthian capitals.
The 12 inch brass-and-silvered dial features a lunar dial and high tide times for "Bristol Key" around the arch. Thomas Wiggan's four pillar movement is eight days duration with rack striking on a single bell, with lunar movement and calendar date.
