W. Organ Longcase Clock

 A nicely proportioned west country mahogany longcase clock. The clock was made by William Organ of Bodmin, Cornwall around 1830. The case is constructed from fine quality mahogany with decorative curl mahogany veneers laid across the front elevation. The trunk of the case also features nice slim quarter pillars with turned wooden caps at either end. To the top of the case the hood is finished with nicely proportioned whales tails and three ball and spire finials.
The movement is of eight day duration and is rack striking on a bell.  The dial features floral decoration to the quarters and a lovely rural scene of a country house and river in the arch.
The clock stands 7 foot 4 inches tall (224cm) to the top of the central finial. The clock was restored some years ago and has recently been serviced.
