| 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 .
