Channel Island Longcase Clock by Edward Renouf of Jersey
A very pretty 12” arched dial 8-day longcase clock. The unusual painted dial is decorated with floral swags to the arch that runs down into the top corners and further floral corners to the lower half of the dial and is made by Byrne of Birmingham. The conventional weight-driven movement strikes the hours on a bell.
The mahogany case is very fine and well-proportioned and features boxwood stringing to the trunk and hood door, boxwood chequering to the hood moulding and base panel, and decorative bone or ivory inlays to the trunk door. Channel island clock making had close links to Dorset and the cases represent those made on the south coast of England at the time, but it’s believed the cases were made in the islands, and the unique decoration on this case seems to back that theory up.
