John Owen 12 Inch Brass Dial . Circa 1745-50 .
This 12 inch dial is from the early section of John Owens clock making career as you can see the centre is matted but the winding holes are no longer ringed on this dial which indicates the clock is closer to 1750 .
The only engraving is a Fleur-de-lis just above the date aperture on the centre panel of the dial with urn spandrels and the sprawling name on the seconds dial .
The case is unusual as it shows inlays that in Welsh history indicate fertility symbols .
