Oak & Mahogany Cross Banded Longcase Clock by Peter Evers, Chester
This is fabulous oak and mahogany cross banded eight-day brass faced. It has an eight-day movement on a brass square dial.
If we start with the hood this has a lovely flat top finished with moulded cornice, the top in then finished with three superb original finals. Lovely delicate reeded columns flank the hood door which finish in brass capitals. There are nice simple back splats. The hood door is nicely cross banded in mahogany.
If we then move down to the trunk this has beautifully shaped full-length door, which has been nicely cross banded in mahogany. The trunk door is then flanked by quarter reeded columns. The door also has its original brass escutcheon.
As with the trunk door the base incorporates some nice mahogany cross banding and has a lovely mahogany cross banded applied panel. The base is raised on ogee bracket feet.
The eight-day movement with makers name of 'Peter Evers, Chester', striking the hour has a square brass face. It also has a subsidiary second dial and date aperture. The four corners are adorned with beautiful spandrels whilst the centre incorporates beautiful engraved swags.
