 Watkin Owen Llanrwst Long case Clock Circa 1790-95 . ( Unseen )

  This is a wonderful example of a late 18th century long case clock by  the most prolific clock makers to come from Wales .
Its 5 pillar movement has come to symbolise the quality Watkin Owen has demanded for his works , the 5th pillar not really being needed on an 8 day movement but Watkin Owen decided that it would give the framing for the works more stability .
Its interlocking lifting mechanism is another uniques feature to these works that and so much more went into making an Owen Long case clock so highly desirable .
The face on this particular clock is by Wilson with Flowers flanking matching diamond fingers its beautifully painted Roman-Arabic  numerals and signiture are sharp and corner floral panels are stunningly detailed .

Dial size : 13 inch 

Overall clock size : 85 inches high x 20 inches wide x 10 inches deep .

Price : SOLD .
