An elegant and attractive London pagoda top longcase clock. The fine quality mahogany case has well chosen flame veneers to the trunk door and to the base panel, both surmounted by strong mahogany mouldings. The trunk has canted corners with brass inlaid and capped reeded columns with a double footed plinth. There are three brass finials to the sides and centre. The pagoda hood has brass reeded and capped columns at the front and brass capped columns at the rear with a glass aperture at the side for viewing the movement.
The brass dial has nicely cast spandrels and well matted centre with a date aperture above 6 o’clock, a signature plaque signed “Samuel Fish, London” and a recessed seconds dial. Above 12 o’clock there is a strike/silent subsidiary dial. There are again well cast spandrels to the sides of the arch.
The eight day five knopped pillar movement is of fine quality with nicely shaped steel work. It strikes the hours on a large bell mounted above the movement. The clock has a brass pendulum bob and two brass cased weights, although one of them has lost most of its brass casting.
