|Description of the item|
This is a really elegant longcase clock whose Regency design is heavily influenced by London tastes of that period. Beautiful mahogany veneered case of excellent proportions and only XXcm tall. Bold XXin dial with blued steel hands. '8-day' movement (winding once a week), it strikes the hours on a clear bell.
|Information about the maker|
We estimated the clock was made circa 1830. The only David Steven we can find recorded in Edinburgh is shown to have worked around 1880 which is well outside any dating margin of error; so we still have work to do to correctly identify the maker. Any information welcomed.
|Dimensions & Specification|
8 day movement, striking the hours on a bell.
Wind once a week with a key through the dial.
13" painted dial with subsidiary date and seconds dials.
Dims: 209.5 cm tall with the finial. (202.4cm without the finial. 194cm without the pediment).

The dial has gently restored retaining the original off-white ground. A few small repairs were completed to the case with the french polish revived. Movement stripped, cleaned and overhauled.
Sold with a warranty where practical due to distance.
We are very certain that the clock is 'unmarried' - ie all the principle parts started life together.
|Cost of Restoration|
Non required. We are aware that pediment (on the top of the hood) may not be to everyone's tastes, but it is the correct form for the region. If it was a deal breaker, it could be removed sensitively and stored inside the case.
