Oak Longcase Clock by REA, Walton
This is a super oak round dial longcase clock. This is an exquisite little country clock which is of lovely slim proportions.
If we start with the hood this is flat topped with a lovely deep moulded cornice. The hood door is flanked by lovely full turned columns.
Moving down to the trunk this has a wonderful full length shaped door and a pretty brass escutcheon. The base is then raised on shaped bracket feet.
The dial is round which is a nice rare feature and the centre to the dial has been beautifully painted with delicate flowers and is signed ‘REA, WALTON’. The movement is 30 hour duration and strikes on a single bell. It has a date aperture nicely edged in gold leaf. There is one Rea of Walton Listed in ‘Watchmakers & Clockmakers of the World Volume 2 by Brian Lommes’:
- Rea . Thomas. Walton (on Trent) c 1750-60. Clockmaker
Height: 81 inches (206cm)
Condition: Fully restored and in excellent condition. The movement has been fully restored and is guaranteed.~
