A George III Oak Longcase Clock By Thomas Husband Of Hull
Period: 18th century
A George III oak longcase clock. This is an 8 day clock that strikes hours on a bell. The dial is an early example with restrained gilded gesso work in the arch and corners. The case is of oak with mahogany cross banding and is typical of a Hull clock. There is a sound fret in the pagoda top. The attractive dial, elegant case and high quality movement are typical of the output of Thomas Husband who worked in Hull from about 1760 until his death in 1812. The works have been serviced and the clock is in good working condition.
