17th Century William and Mary 'Bird and Flower' Marquetry Longcase Clock
All of the individual parts of this 12th scale longcase clock were made by me, there are over four hundred minute pieces of marquetry in this clock, with the flowers and birds that you can see on the door and the stringing and cross banding on the case. All of the woods you can see are natural, no dyes or paints were used. The barley twist pillars are both left and right hand and have brass capitals. The chapter ring is brass and is engraved and silvered. The dial has large cherub head spandrels and the hands are copies of a pair of 17th century hands.
