Longcase clock by James Yardley of Bishop's Stortford, c.
1790, good quality five pillar 8 day movement, striking the hours, arched top
one piece silvered dial with engraved decoration, seconds and date indication,
makers name engraved within arch, with bird and scroll engravings to corners.
In its original oak case being a provincial form of 'London' style, of nice proportions and
colour, pagoda topped hood, reeded columns with brass capitals, side windows,
long ached top trunk door and quite low but seemingly original proportioned base with
simple double plinth.
A superb clock in fine original condition by a well
known local maker, the Yardleys made clocks in Bishop's Stortford over a
period spanning nearly 150 years.
The movement, dial and case professionally and
sympathetically restored. Condition excellent with minor restoratons,
cleaning and waxing, movement overhauled to a guaranteed standard.
