The substantial, 8 day duration, five finned pillar movement with Anchor Recoil escapement and internal countwheel striking on the large, gunmetal, top-mounted bell.

Behind a 12" square brass dial. Having 'Indian's head', cast brass corner spandrels and a silvered and broad chapter ring with an outer ring, Arabic 5's numerals, minute track, Roman hour numerals, inner quarter track with a further ring and half hour Fleur-de-Lys markings. The dial centre is finely matted and has ringed winding holes, a square chamfered and patterned calendar date aperture and a silvered and bordered maker's cartouche bearing "Joseph Jackeman, LONDON" below centre. The blued steel hands are finely pierced.

Contained in a walnut veneered slender case of good colour.
The flat top having a large crossgrain moulded cornice above a blank frieze. This sits upon the full-size hood door with integral slim pillars with brass capitals. The sides have glazed viewing apertures. The lower hood skirt is crossgrained as is the large Cavetto throat. The trunk bears a full-length door with book-fold figured veneer, herringbone edging and a half-round edge moulding also, a circular 'bullseye' glazed lenticle with half-round moulding. The base has a well executed crossgrain top moulding and conforming veneer and edging. The double plinth sits upon four short block feet.

* This attractive and slender clock is an ideal furnishing piece as well as an example of an early 18th century longcase clock. Joseph Jackeman was probably born in 1655. He was apprenticed oddly enough through the Clothworker's Company in 1669 for 7 years to Richard Jackman of 'Shad Thames' in Southwark. When freed he traded from London Bridge, London and was last heard of in 1716.

Dimensions:                    86 1/2" high x 20" wide x 10 1/2" deep.

Circa:                              1715.

Condition:                        Extensively restored throughout approximately 30 years ago and run continually
                                        and without fault or attention, ever since therefore, it would benefit greatly from an
                                        overhaul to the movement. The dial is good with some staining and discolouration.
                                        The case is excellent with the exception of minor veneer losses to the rear of the
                                        sides. It has served the previous owners well and in the same spot for all this time
                                        but due to downsizing, they have reluctantly decided to allow someone else the
                                        pleasure of it.

Price:                               TBN.
